Ames ISO 384 Well TestAmes Test ISO 384 Well Format

Product No. 6041

1. Includes 1 bacterial strain and direct acting positive control (TA100 is default strain included with Basic Kit unless otherwise requested)

2. Reagents and plastics for 24 samples (includes sterile 24 well exposure plates, 384 well incubation microplates and solution mixture vials.)

The Ames ISO Basic Kit is a fluctuation assay verison of the well-known “Ames Test” which uses a 48-well sample exposure format on a 384-well microplate to reduce reagent and plastic used.

Which Ames Test is best for my research

Muta-ChromoPlate Ames Test

Ideal for direct assessment of environmental samples

Educational uses for classroom projects (easy to preform)

96 well format on 96 well plates. More endpoints/ sample can improve significance

Bacterial exposure occurs throughout the assay

Extremely user friendly with minimal steps required to obtain results

Excellent to test volatile materials

No preconcentration steps required, large sample volumes used

More sensitive results compared to plate incorporation assays

ISO and Modified ISO Ames Tests

Ideal for pharmaceutical and novel molecule discoveries

48-well format in 96 or 384-well plates reduces plates required for result development

HIGH THROUGHPUT METHOD! Many samples or dilution levels can be tested rapidly

Smaller sample sizes required

Bacterial concentration is checked by optical density (ensures log growth phase) 

Reduced plastics and reagents necessary, less disposal

Quantification is simple and test scoring is quick and easy

Assay is more sensitive than the plate-incorporation assay

Utilizes pre-exposure period to enhance bacterial uptake

More consistent exposure concentration during auxotrophic growth phases


Muta-ChromoPlate Kits

EBPI offers a large line of Ames Tests to meet researchers needs and requirements.  EBPI's Muta-ChromoPlate kit was one of the first commercially Ames Test assays on the market, and has grown to be one of the most commonly used Ames Assays to screen for mutagenic activity.
