The buccal micronucleus (BC-MN) assay is an effect biomarker for the detection of chromosomal damage in buccal epithelial tissue exfoliated cells, derived from the basal layer where cell division takes place and then they migrate towards the surface within few days.It implies a minimally invasive procedure to collect buccal cells; slides are easily prepared and stained for microscopic analysis, although the observation is time-consuming.
