Título Absence of mutagenic response to radiation from a video display terminal
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1988, Vol.14, No.1, p.49-51. 15 ref.
Resumen The standard Ames Salmonella test (TA 100) was used to assess the mutagenicity of radiation from a video display terminal. The Ames test is a sensitive assay that assesss the ability of a chemical to damage deoxyribonucleic acid. It has also been employed to assess the mutagenicity of electromagnetic radiation. An extremely short distance (62mm) from a video display terminal and an extremely high electrostatic field strength (250 kV/m) was employed. No mutagenic response was found in this test system.
