DURATION
- Preincubation period: 10h
- Exposure duration: 48h


NUMBER OF REPLICATIONS: 3 per concentration


Evaluation criteria:
A test item is considered mutagenic if:
-A dose-related increase in the number of revertants occur and/or:
-A reproducible biologically relevant positive response for at least one of the test points occurs in at least one strain with or withour metabolic activation.
Statistics:
The mutation factor is calculated by dividing the mean value of the revertant counts through the mean values of the solvent control.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Interpretation of results (migrated information):
negative with metabolic activation
negative without metabolic activation

The test item did not cause gene mutations by base pair changes or frameshifts in the genome of the tester strains used.
