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

/tran·su·date/ (tran´su-dāt) a fluid substance that has passed through a membrane or has been extruded from a tissue; in contrast to an exudate, it is of high fluidity and has a low content of protein, cells, or solid materials derived from cells.

transudate

(trăn-so͞o′dāt′, -syo͞o′-, trăn′so͝o-dāt′, -syo͝o-) also

transudation

(trăn′so͝o-dā′shən, -syo͝o-)
n.
1. A product of the process of transuding.
2. A substance that transudes.

transudate

[trans′yədāt]
Etymology: L, trans + sudare, to sweat
a fluid passed through a membrane or squeezed through a tissue or into the space between the cells of a tissue. It is thin and watery and contains few blood cells or other large proteins. See also edema.

tran·su·date

(tran'sū-dāt)
Any fluid (solvent and solute) that has passed through a presumably normal membrane, such as the capillary wall, as a result of unbalanced hydrostatic and osmotic forces; characteristically low in protein unless there has been secondary concentration.
Compare: exudate

[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

any substance that passes through a membrane, especially through the wall of a capillary

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.

transudate

fluid that has passed through a normal membrane as a result of imbalanced hydrostatic/onchotic (osmotic) pressures, e.g. process of oedema formation as part of acute inflammation (inflammatory exudate accumulates as net result of onchotic pressure exerted by plasma proteins that have escaped from local vessels into surrounding tissue spaces)

transudate (tran´soodāt),

n any fluid substance that has passed through a membrane, possibly associated with inflammation. It is low in proteins and colloids and has a low specific gravity.

transudate

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.

modified transudate
one with additional protein and/or cells. It may be a transitional stage, progressing to an exudate.

Many tests we used to differentiate transudate from exudates by specific gravity, cell count and presence or absence of clotting of fluids.
In 1972, Light et al (1) developed a set of criteria for the diagnostic separation of pleural fluids into transudates and exudates.
1] It is evident that the sensitivity of diagnostic parameters of Light's criteria as isolated tests is low in case of transudates, which may lead to misclassification of a transudate as an exudate.

1), (3), (6) This chemical analysis helps to determine whether the fluid is an exudate or a transudate by applying the modified Light's criteria (Table 6).
Remember that necropsy evidences are hydropericardium, heart dilatation, muscles and intestine hyperemia, accumulation of transudate fluid contained fibrin in abdominal cavity and liver edematous.
To differentiate transudate from exudate, the ratio of pleural fluid and serum protein ; the ratio of pleural fluid and serum LDH were calculated.

Wound collections are not necessarily indicative of infection; collections of fluid within the wound may represent a serous transudate, blood, pus, or a combination of these.
All recipients of both vaccines have very high seroconversion rates near 100 per cent; they show rapid, development high titre (way higher than that seen with natural infection) IgG neutralizing antibodies which are thought to transudate across into cervical secretions, into tissues and neutralizing any wild virus type infection (31,34).
The effusion itself is labelled as transudate when the protein content is less than 29g/L, and otherwise as exudate.
