Abstract

Some chemical substances are capable of modifying genetic material and thereby also damaging it. Aquatic genotoxicity testing represents an important contribution to environmental research today. Sensitive testing methods for practical applications have been developed with reasonable certainty, which allow genotoxic (mutagenic) agents to be discovered in the environment. Risk levels for humans and the environment may be reliably assessed and the resulting consequences predicted.
