CAS number: 144-55-8
In accordance with Section 1 of REACH
Annex XI, testing does not appear scientifically necessary. None of the
mutagenicity tests were performed according to guidelines. However, all
the results were negative and more or less well documented. Furthermore,
sodium bicarbonate is naturally present in cells and the structure does
not indicate a genotoxic potential. Therefore, sodium bicarbonate is
considered to be not genotoxic. Moreover, is the substance already
present in the tissue culture media of the in vitro test systems for
genetic toxicity testing, and needed for normal function of the cells in
culture. Testing sodium bicarbonate in vitro will affect the
cellular homeostasis due to osmolarity and/or pH of the culture medium
which might give rise to a specific effects.
