Amount / concentration applied:
750 μL of the undiluted test substance
Duration of treatment / exposure:

Details on study design:
The test method consists of a topical exposure of the test substance to the epithelial surface of isolated corneas from the eyes of freshly slaughtered cattle. Corneal opacity is measured quantitatively as the amount of light transmission through the cornea. Permeability is measured quantitatively as the amount of sodium fluorescein dye that passes across the full thickness of the cornea. Both measurements are used to calculate an In Vitro lrritancy Score (IVIS) of the test substance, which is used for the prediction of serious eye damage.
Histological evaluation of the treated corneas was performed in addition to the assessment of opacity and permeability.
Three corneas were treated with 750 μL of the undiluted test substance for 10 minutes followed by a 2-hours post-incubation period.

Negative control: de-ionized water
Positive control: 100% dimethylformamide

Results and discussion

Irritation parameter:
other: IVIS
Time point:
other: 10 minutes followed by a 2-hours post-incubation period
other: not applicable

Any other information on results incl. tables

The mean IVIS of the negative and positive controls was 1.6 and 121, respectively.

Histopathological evaluation resulted in no findings for test substance and negative control and severe findings (IV) for the positive control.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: not corrosive or severely irritating.
The present data on eye irritation do not fulfill the criteria laid down in 67/548/EEC and regulation (EU) 1272/2008, and therefore, a non-classification is warranted.
