The test consists of a topical exposure of the neat test article to a human reconstituted epidermis model for 60 min. During the 60 minute exposure period, the treated epidermis is first left at room temperature for 25 minutes and subsequently incubated for 35 min at 37°C. At the end of exposure, the test article is removed from the epidermis and the tissue is incubated for an additional 42h to express the resulting damage. Cell viability is measured by dehydrogenase conversion of MTT [(3-4,5-dimethyl thiazole 2-yl) 2,5-diphenyltetrazoliumbromide], taken up by cell mitochondria, into a blue formazan salt that is quantitatively measured...
