Additional information on results:
Observations:
No increases in revertant colony numbers over control counts
were obtained with any of the tester strains following
exposure to the test substance in either the presence or
absence od S9 mix. Appropriate responses were obtained from
negative and positive controls.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

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

The test material did not exhibit any mutagenic activity under the conditions of the test.
