The inoculation mixture should be prepared aseptically to minimize contamination with endotoxins. In addition, the immunogen itself may have innate adjuvant activity and this should be checked before preparing complex adjuvant formulations. Conjugation of the immunogen to a carrier may impart innate adjuvant activity (see Note 5). Because of necessity, many of these tests require the use of living animals to obtain standard values for the various tests, however, some attempts could be made to extrapolate from data in published records of adjuvant research.
