Salmonella TA1535 detected few mutagens not detected by Salmonella TA100.
Salmonella TA97 should be used in preference to Salmonella TA1537.
Escherichia coli WP2 uvrA pKM101 is preferred to WP2 uvrA and Salmonella TA102.
Salmonella TA98 & TA100 detected 93% of mutagens detected by all the TG471 strains.
