The mutagenicity of Carbitol (diethylene glycol monoethyl ether) was evaluated in Salmonella tester strains TA98, TA100, TA1535, TA1537, and TA1538 (Ames Test), both in the presence and absence of added metabolic activation by Aroclor-induced rat liver S9 fraction. Based on the results of preliminary bacterial toxicity testing, the material was tested for mutagenicity at concentrations of 0, 3000, 6000, 9000, 12000, 15000, and 20000 ug/plate using the direct plate incorporation method. Carbitol did not cause a reproducible positive response in any of the bacterial tester strains, either in the presence or absence of added metabolic activation.
