Count colonies either manually or by an electronic colony counter. 10. Express the test results as number of revertant colonies per plate. D. 4 Data Evaluation 19 The evaluation data criterion that has been widely used is to set a minimum fold increase (usually 2–3-fold, over the solvent/negative control) as the cutoff between mutagenic and non-mutagenic response [26]. However, according to Zeiger et al. [13], nonstatistical procedure also has been established to evaluate the results. Using this procedure, the following criteria are used to interpret results.

The Ames II test can be used for the screening of a large number of samples or samples available in limited quantities in early drug discovery. It contains the frameshift strain TA98 and covers all six possible base-pair mutations detecting strains in TAMix. However, it will not detect frameshift mutations that specifically revert TA1537. Furthermore, the six base-specific strains are combined to a single culture—the TAMix—and thus diluted sixfold. Alternatively, TAMix can be replaced by the traditional strain TA100 in the Ames MPF 98/100 assay, hence using a classic basepair strain with comparable spectrum of responsiveness [16].
