In a previous study (publication 10485 ) with 6.26 µT (limit value for general population), the authors did not find an effect on the fetal development of pregnant mice.
In this study, the intensity was increased up to 30 µT (limit value for occupational exposure). Pregnant mice were exposed (n=10) and sham exposed (n=11) from gestation day 2.5-15.5. On gestation day 18, the dams were sacrificed.

No significant effects of exposure on the developmental stage of the fetuses in pregnant mice were found. No difference was observed for the sex ratio between exposed and sham exposed mice.
Electromagnetic field exposure in pregnant mice did not affect fetal external and internal development. Thus, the data confirm the findings from a previous study (publication 10485).
