Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 471 (Bacterial Reverse Mutation Assay)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
NR deficient strains
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The traditional strains used for OECD 471 will be checked in parallel with the same strains deficient in the nitro-reductasi enzyme (present only in bacteria) as to avoid the NO2 group reduction present in the test item. Reduction of the nitro groups in fact produce in the substance aromatic amines that typically give false positive for the traditional tested strains.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Type of assay:
bacterial reverse mutation assay
