Details on test system and experimental conditions:
METHOD OF APPLICATION: in agar (plate incorporation); preincubation

DURATION
Plate incorcoration method:
- Exposure duration: ca. 48-72 hours at 37°C
Preincubation method:
- Preincubation period: 20 minutes at 37°C
- Exposure duration: ca. 48-72 hours at 37°C

NUMBER OF REPLICATIONS:
- 3 test plates per dose or per control

DETERMINATION OF CYTOTOXICITY
- Decrease in the number of revertants
- Reduced his- or trp- background growth
- Reduction in the titer
Evaluation criteria:
The test chemical is considered positive in this assay if a dose-related and reproducible increase in the number of revertant colonies (i.e. about doubling of the spontaneous mutation rate) in at least one tester strain is observed either without S-9 mix or after adding a metabolizing system.
A test substance is generally considered nonmutagenic in this test if the number of revertants for all tester strains were within the historical negative control range under all experimental conditions in two experiments carried out independently of each other.
Statistics:
no data
