Practically all types of eukaryotic cells can be studied for DNA strand breaks using microgel electrophoretic (comet) assay. All environmental samples can be applied to detect mutagenic/genotoxic compounds. Samples should be concentrated by the particular methods and incorporated into an agarose microgel together with the cells. After electrophoresis, fluorescent staining and image-analysis the DNA strand breaks can be evaluated.
