Endpoint Conclusion: No adverse effect observed (negative)

Justification for classification or non-classification

The Ames test for perfluorodecalin indicates it has no genetic toxicity. Decades of experience handling saturated perfluorocarbons have further indicated no toxic effects for any of these substances. Their use in medical applications - in which perfluorodecalin is the most commonly used example - in the blood, lungs and eyes supports the data.
