The report contains recommendations for selecting substantially predictive biological screening tests. The large number of chemicals which can potentially impact human health and the environment precludes the complete testing of each substance. In order to effect preliminary chemical hazard ranking, initial tests must be standardized and validated and the necessary quality control practices and techniques developed and implemented. This report contains recommendations for selecting substantially predictive biological screening tests upon which the Agency's quality assurance resources may be initially concentrated.
