What is a genotoxicity test?
Genotoxicity is the toxic that can be found in the chemicals and that has abilities to cause damage to genetic materials. The damage to genetic materials by genotoxicity can result in mutation and many types of cancers.
The purpose of genotoxicity test is to find out if the cosmetics products contain the ingredients with the properties that can cause mutation or cancers to the product users. The Genotoxicity tests offered by TIBD are in accordance with OECD guidelines.
We provide 3 various types of Genotoxicity Tests
There are three genotoxicity tests that are available in the arm of TIBD. They are as followed:
Bacterial Reverse Mutation Test
This test is a widely used initial screening test method to discover potential gene mutations in the new chemical products. To detect mutation, the test uses amino-acid that is lacking strains of Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli. The test discovers mutations which revert mutations in the tested product sample and restore the ability of bacteria to grow and synthesise an absent essential amino acid. This test follows OECD guidelines 471.
In vitro Mammalian Cell Micronucleus Test (MNvit)
In vitro Mammalian Cell Micronucleus Test, known as MNvit, is an in vitro test method used to investigate micronuclei which is a sign of genotoxicity and to detect genotoxic substances that shelter chromosome damaging potential. This test is in compliance with OECD guidelines 487.
In Vitro Comet Assay
In vitro Comet Assay (also known as single cell gel electrophoresis assay) is used to test genotoxicity in substances such as cosmetic products, industrial chemicals, agrochemicals, and pharmaceuticals. This test is used to measure DNA strand breaks in eukaryotic cells.
