Using mucus rheology, we help you choose the best solution for your project.

Mucus is a complex fluid composed of various molecules that interact together, resulting in peculiar properties: viscoelasticity, plasticity, stretchability, yield stress. Reproducing all these properties within one single formulation from commercially available constituents is a challenge.

We are able to formulate an artificial mucus balancing cost/volume, biological properties and physical properties. Choices are made based on the intended use and our database.



The selection of the proper ingredients for an artificial mucus is based on:

  • Biological components
    • Mucins
    • DNA
    • Cells
    • Bacteria
  • Chemicals
    • Biopolymers
    • Salts
    • Other polymers

The formulation can be adapted to the wanted physical properties

  • Plasticity
  • Elasticity
  • Stringiness
  • Adhesion
