Acrylamide 3x cryst. 99.99% for molecular biology [79-06-1]
Acrylamide is used, among others as a monomer in the production of polyacrylamide. Acrylamide contributes to the occurrence of gastrointestinal cancers and damages the nervous system (it is a neurotoxin). Cigarette smoke is also a source of acrylamide. Large amounts of acrylamide are formed during the heat treatment of starch-containing food products.

Labels for hazardous chemicals and mixtures that are part of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The pictograms recommended by GHS have the shape of a square set on the top. They should contain a black symbol on a white background with a red border.
Priority rules to be observed in connection with the labeling of a substance:
– the skull and crossbones, the exclamation mark pictogram should not be added.
– corrosivity, the pictogram exclamation mark should not be added if it concerns eye or skin irritation.
– health hazard determining respiratory sensitization, the exclamation mark pictogram should not be added if it concerns skin sensitization or irritation to eyes or skin.
