Test animals / tissue source

Species:
other: Lohmann selected Leghorn chicken eggs
Strain:
not specified

Test system

Vehicle:
unchanged (no vehicle)
Controls:
other: other: Eggs treated with each 300 μL physiological NaCl solution (0.9% (v/v)) without other substanc es) were used as negative controls. 3 eggs were tested.
Duration of treatment / exposure:
The eggs were obtained from the LSL Rhein-Main Geflügelvermehrungsbetriebe (D-64807 Dieburg,
Germany) on day one. Afterwards they were incubated at 37,5 ± 0.5 °C for eight days. While incuba
tion the eggs were rotated to prevent an attachment of the embryo to one side of the egg. On day ei
ght the eggs were candled and non-viable eggs were discarded. The rest of the eggs were placed
upward in the incubator and were incubated for another day without rotation.
Observation period (in vivo):
The observation time was 300 s at room temperature.
Number of animals or in vitro replicates:
6 eggs

Results
Irritation parameter:
other: Mean irritancy index
Run / experiment:

Value:
0.66
Remarks on result:
no indication of irritation
Remarks:
Values <0.9 are related to the outcome "non irritant"

Any other information on results incl. tables

The solid test item was tested non dissolved. Therefore each about 100 mg of the test item was applied to the membrane so that at least 50% of the membrane was covered by the test item. During the observation for 300 seconds lesions in close proximity to the covered membrane were noted.

Physiological sodium chloride solution was used as negative control.The negative control showed no irritating effect on the blood vessels under the membrane.An 1% solution of SDS and 0.1 N solution of NaOH were used as positive controls.

The positive controls induced a severe irritation on the blood vessels. The calculated mean irritancy indices are 10.11 for 1% SDS and 18.85 for 0.1 N NaOH.

No irritating effects were observed during 5 min incubation with the test item. The calculated irritancy mean index is 0.66.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item does not possess an irritating potential.
Executive summary:

The test did not reveal any irritant properties. Thus it is evident, that disodium hydroxy(sulfinato)acetate

is devoid of adverse reactivity towards mucous membranes.
