Briefly, on a log forward scatter/log side scatter dot plot, we defined the upper size limit of the microparticles using 1-[micro]m calibrant beads and drewa gate around the population.
Obviously, the NTP carcinogenicity data must be maintained as the primary calibrant for this study, but the data derived here for TMTU suggests that the carcinogenic profile of a chemical is not absolute (4-7,45) and that, in fact, tissue changes seen for some chemicals classified as noncarcinogenic may be predicative of an as yet unrealized, or perhaps ultimately unrealizable, carcinogenic activity.
Background fluorescence of the stop buffer droplet was recorded as a low calibrant value.
