mi·cro·di·al·y·sis

(mī'krō-dī-al'i-sis),
A method of studying extracellular fluid composition and response to exogenous agents, using a tiny tubular probe with a dialysis membrane and fluid flow rates of 1-3 mcL/minute, inserted into tissues.

Method of studying extracellular fluid composition and response to exogenous agents.

microdialysis,

n a technique for measuring extracellular concentrations of substances in tissues, usually in vivo, by means of a small probe equipped with a semipermeable membrane. Substances may also be introduced into the extracellular space through the membrane.
