By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Health and Environmental Sciences Institute Genetic Toxicology Technical Committee (HESI GTTC) needs your help.  We are developing a project to improve the clarity and application of OECD TG 489 (In Vivo Mammalian Alkaline Comet) for applications across most industries.  But to accomplish this, we need to identify the most critical issues and concerns to address.  So included below is a link for our survey that will help us gather this information.  If you have been considering, conducting, requesting, reviewing , or even avoiding regulated in vivo comet assay studies, please complete our survey.  And if you have any colleagues that may be willing to contribute their input, we would really appreciate it if you could forward to them the link for our survey. Regardless of one’s industry or level of experience with the comet assay, everyone’s input is very critical to this process.  The survey will only take a few minutes and we are asking participants to please complete it by the end of December 2019.  Please note that every participant will be informed of the results of this survey and the GTTC plans to address the issues raised.
