8). The preparation of the TA98, TA1535, and TA1537 exposure cultures is the same as described for the Ames II, whereas TA100 and the E. coli are more diluted in the exposure medium. The two E. coli strains are grown individually overnight and then exposed together to a test sample. This “EC Combo” has the following advantages over an individual exposure: The two strains are not equally sensitive to different chemicals and it is always the more sensitive strain that dominates in the EC Combo assay which allows to detect more mutagens than with the single strains alone .

Give the rats unrestricted access to drinking water and food until 12 h prior to kill them. At that point, remove the food. 3. Kill the animal by cervical dislocation and place it on its back on an autopsy board. Note: All subsequent steps should be performed at 0 –4 ºC, using cold, sterile solutions and glassware. For preparing the S-9 fraction: 4. 15-M KCl/g wet liver. 5. 15-M KCl. 6. 15-M KCl/g wet liver. 7. Mince the livers with sterile scissors and homogenize using a Potter-Elvehjem homogenizer with a loose Teflon pestle.
