METHOD OF APPLICATION: in mediumDURATION- Exposure duration: 4 or 20h (see table 1)- Recovery: 4, 20, 28 or 44h (see table 1)- preparation interval: 24 or 48h (see table 1)For the micronucleus analysis the cultures of two flasks of each treatment group seeded and treated in parallel were trypsinised approx. 4 hours before the end of the recovery period and the cells were counted and then adhered in quadriperm dishes on slides for approx. 3 hours. Afterwards, the slides in the chambers of the quadriperm dishes were treated with a hypotonic solution (1.5 % [w/v] sodium citrate) for 5 min at 37° C. After incubation in the hypotonic solution the cells were fixed twice for < 1 min with a solution containing 3 parts ethanol, 1 part acetic acid and 1.25 % (v/v) formaldehyde. After preparation the cells were stained with May Grünwald and GiemsaNUMBER OF REPLICATIONS: in triplicateNumber of cells evaluated: 2000
Evaluation criteria:
A test substance can be classified as mutagenic if:- the number of micronucleated cells is not in the range of our historical control data (0.0 - 2.0 % micronucleated cells).and- either a concentration-related increase in three test groups or a significant increase of micronucleated cells in at least one test group is observed.A test substance can be classified as non-mutagenic if:- the number of micronucleated cells in all evaluated test groups is in the range of our historical control data (0.0 - 2.0 % micronucleated cells). and/or- no concentration-related increase in the number of micronucleated cells is observed.
Statistical significance can be confirmed by means of the Chi square test. However, both biological and statistical significance should be considered together. lf the criteria above mentioned for the test substance are not clearly met, the classification with regard to the historical data and the biological relevance is discussed and/or a confirmatory experiment is performed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results (migrated information):negativeIn conclusion, it can be stated !hat under the experimental conditions reported, the test substance did not induce micronuclei in V79 cells (Chinese hamster cell line) in vitro in the absence and the presence of metabolic activation. Therefore, the test item has to be considered as non-mutagenic in this in vitro testsystem when tested up to the highest applicable test substance concentrations.
