- The Ames MPF 98/100 assay comprises the histidine auxotrophic Salmonella tester strains TA98 for detecting frameshift mutations and TA100 which is reverted by base-pair substitutions and all media required to perform the assay. TA98 and TA100 are commonly used for mutagenicity screening because they indicate both frameshift and base-pair mutations. These kits are shipped at ambient temperature. Strains must be stored at -70°C upon arrival.
- 10 Vials Semisolid TA100.
- 10 Vials Semisolid TA98.
- 10 Vials Amp-icillin.
- Growth Media, Exposure Media and Indicator Media.
- Sufficient for 10 samples when tested with and without S9, in triplicates, 6 concentrations, with negative and positive controls. This equals a total of 480 measurements per strain.
