Mini-gel comet assay working with metallic nanoparticles.

Researchers from the Karolinska Institutet, RECETOX at the Masaryk University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology worked in collaboration to study the size-dependent genotoxicity of silver (Ag), gold (Au) and platinum (Pt) nanoparticles (NPs).  

Explore Mutagenesis 2018 “Special Issue: Comet Assay”

In early 2018, The Oxford University Press, together with United Kingdom Environmental Mutagen Society, composed a special comet assay issue of the Mutagenesis journal.  This issue included a commentary article written by Peter Møller.

3D Skin Models & Comet Assay IV

The 3D Skin Comet assay was developed by a collaboration of researchers to improve the in vitro prediction of the genotoxic potential of dermally applied chemicals. The comet assay was combined with reconstructed 3D skin models  in this exciting investigation.

Mutagenicity & Genotoxicity in Italian cities

Airborne particulate matter can include smoke, dust, dirt, soot, and even liquid droplets. The particles are emitted into the air and remain suspended in the atmosphere.  Airborne particulate matter has long been recognized as a potential health hazard. 

The future of the comet assay

The International Comet Assay Workshops are a series of scientific conferences dealing with practical and theoretical aspects of the comet assay.  After the meeting, a publication featuring the major themes and ideas of the workshop was produced.
