Test system

Vehicle:
other: mineral oil
Controls:
yes, concurrent vehicle
yes, concurrent positive control
Amount / concentration applied:
Test item was suspended uniformly in the mineral oil at 5% (w/w) concentration and further diluted by serial 10-fold dilution to 0.5% then to 0.05% concentration. Test item was tested at both 5% and 0.05% concentrations. Cells cultured in the 96-well plate were exposed to 200 μL/well of either a 5% or a 0.05% concentration of the test item suspension, for five minutes at room temperature.
Duration of treatment / exposure:
5 minutes
Number of animals or in vitro replicates:
9

other: No prediction can be made
Conclusions:
'Short Time Exposure In-Vitro Study Using SIRC Cell Line for Identification of Eye Irritation or Serious Eye Damage of Trans-2,3-Dibromo-2-Butene-1,4-Diol' was carried out in compliance with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, Section 4, No. 491 - Short Time Exposure In Vitro Test Method for Identifying i) Chemicals Inducing Serious Eye Damage and ii) Chemicals Not Requiring Classification for Eye Irritation or Serious Eye Damage, adopted by the council on 09 October 2017 and as per mutually agreed Study Plan.
Under the given experimental conditions of 'Short Time Exposure In-Vitro Study Using SIRC Cell Line for Identification of Eye Irritation or Serious Eye Damage of Trans-2,3-Dibromo-2-Butene-1,4-Diol' (OECD Guideline No. 491)', it is concluded that this test method has successfully classified the test item into ‘No prediction can be made’ category as per the United Nations (UN) Globally Harmonised System (GHS) for classification of chemicals.
