Comet Assay

Comet Featured


Comets are scored by microscope using the established Comet Assay IV™ software. At least 50 comets are scored for each test chemical dose and for each control.

A minimum relative survival of 80% is required for comet scoring to be considered valid.

Data can be assessed using different parameters, though Gentronix’s standard parameter is the ‘mean percentage tail intensity’.
