transudate

 [tran´su-dāt]
a fluid substance that has passed through a membrane or has been extruded from a tissue; in contrast to an exudate, a transudate is characterized by high fluidity and a low content of protein, cells, or solid matter derived from cells.

tran·su·date

(tranz'yū-dāt),
Any fluid (solvent and solute) that has passed through a presumably normal membrane, such as the capillary wall, as a result of imbalanced hydrostatic and osmotic forces; characteristically low in protein unless there has been secondary concentration. Compare: exudate.
Synonym(s): transudation (2)
[trans- + L. sudo, pp. -atus, to sweat]

transudate

1. A fluid that has passed through a membrane.
2. A collection of fluid resulting from increased capillary pressure in capillary beds or decreased osmosis from reduced blood protein.

Transudate

The type of pleural effusion seen with heart failure or other disorders of the circulation. It features clear fluid containing few cells and little protein.
