AMES MPF 98/100 AQUA TESTING
Ames MPF 98/100 AQUA - a novel mutagenicity test kit for the testing of water quality: The novel Ames MPF 98/100 AQUA is designed to detect the mutagenic potential of non-concentrated water samples. The assay allows to use 18.5 times more sample volume than with the conventional Ames MPF 98/100 for testing of chemical compounds thanks to a 10-fold concentrated Exposure Medium. The assay uses S. typhimurium TA98 and TA100 strains and may be used for the testing of sterile aqueous solutions, such as fresh water, waste water, aqueous extracts and leachates, aqueous solutions of chemicals and chemical mixtures.
The Ames MPF AQUA procedure can be used with any other Ames MPF Salmonella strain available from Aniara (TA1535, TA1537, TAMix). Please note that TA1535 and TA1537 are NOT ampicillin - resistant!
