'The method happens to be illustrated using whole smoke but could be modified to test various other aerosols and gases.' The next step is to research extra Ames strains and integrate the most effective right into a regulator-acceptable test battery for tobacco smoke. The Ames test, is used for the initial genotoxicity screening of pharmaceuticals and chemicals widely.
