Abstract : This report presents the FORTRAN V programs utilized for the production of labels and cards for the Drosophila melanogaster sex-linked recessive lethal mutagenicity assay. This program provides for the efficient and correct labelling of articles used in the assay. The use of this program to produce parallel labels and cards not only reduces preparation time, but assures the proper sequence and completeness of the assay. This along with data storage and archiving also insures compliance with the requirements of the Food and Drug Administrations Good Laboratory Practices Act. (Author)
