Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

The test item was assayed at three concentrations of 25, 50 and 100%.  

Each female mousewas treated by  topical application with the selected solution to entire dorsal surface  of each ear once daily over three consecutive days. Five days after the first topical application treatment all mice were  injected intravenous with 3H-methyl thymidine. 
Approximately 5 hours after 3H-methyl thymidine injection all mice were  sacrificed and the draining auricular lymph nodes were 
excised, in order  to prepare single cell suspension of the lymph node cells.

The 3 H-methyl thymidine-incorporation was measured in a Beckman LS6500 counter and  expressed as the number  of disintegrations per minute (DPM).  Determination of radioactivity was performed individually for each animal. The proliferation response of lymph node cells was calculated as the  ratio of 3H-methyl thymidine incorporation into lymph nodecells of test  group animals relative to that recorded for control group animals. A  stimulation index, ratio of test substance/vehiclecontrol, was  calculated for each concentration.

Interpretation of results:
not sensitising
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
The test material was considered to be a non-sensitizer under the conditions of the test.
Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:
Migrated from Short description of key information:
MBTester is a non sensitizing agent.

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available
Additional information:
Justification for selection of respiratory sensitisation endpoint:
No data

Justification for classification or non-classification

On the basis of the test result no classification is necessary.
