Abstract This review discusses sources and types of air pollution; collection, fractionation and chemical analysis of air samples; and in vitro bioassay systems capable of quantitating mutagenicity of these air samples and their components. Case studies utlizing bioassays to detect mutagenicity, such as the Tradescantia plant assay (on-site) and the Ames/Salmonella bacterial assay (off-site) are reviewed. Problems such as sample size, complexity of the air sample (both vapor-phase and… Expand
