Artificial Perspiration

Overview

Artificial-Perspiration2Artificial Perspiration

The, artificial Eccrine Sweat we offer is a stabilized ready to use solution. It consists of the 19 amino acids, the seven most abundant minerals and the four most abundant metabolites at a pH of 4.5. All concentrations closely match experimentally determined values for adult human Eccrine Sweat. Custom formulations are available on request.

Pickering Laboratories is now pleased to offer our Artificial Eccrine Perspiration in a larger format – in addition to the 200 mL and 5 mL quantities, we now offer our stabilized formulation in a 950 mL volume, packaged in a 1 L plastic eluent bottle.

Storage and Handling

The stabilized solution is preserved with a fungicide and bactericide for two years of shelf life.
The non-stabilized product is at a pH of 4.5 and kept frozen.

 

 

 

Ready to Use Solutions

Ready to Use Solutions

Pickering Laboratories created our Artificial Eccrine Perspiration to universally standardize across all industries; it is the only formula that can satisfy all test challenges. Although it is the most complete formulation available, we also offer the following industry-specific artificial perspiration formulations.

ISO 3160 – Artificial Eccrine Perspiration

Corrosion Resistance for Alloys

This is a ready to use solution that is used to determine corrosion resistance. The non-stabilized formulation is at pH 4.7 and is kept frozen. (Custom pH and stabilized versions available)

ISO 105-B07- Sweat

Colorfastness to Light for Fabric, Acidic or Alkaline

These are ready to use solutions that are used to test the colorfastness to light of a fabric saturated with either the acidic or alkaline solution. The pH of the acidic solution is 5.5 and that of the alkaline solution is 8.0. The non-stabilized product is kept frozen. (Custom pH and stabilized versions available)

AATCC Test Method 15 Artificial Perspiration

Colorfastness to Perspiration for Fabric

This ready to use solution is used to determine the fastness of colored textiles to the effects of acid perspiration. The non-stabilized formulation at pH 4.3 and is kept frozen. (Custom pH and stabilized versions available)

ISO 1164 Sweat

Colorfastness to Perspiration for Leather 

This ready to use solution is used to determine the fastness of leather to perspiration. The non-stabilized formulation at pH 8.0 and is kept frozen. (Custom pH and stabilized versions available)

ISO 12870 – Artificial Eccrine Perspiration

Ophthalmic Optics

This ready to use solution is used to determine the effect of sweat on ophthalmic optics and spectacle frames. The nonstabilized formulation is kept frozen. (Custom pH and stabilized versions available)

BS EN 1811:2011

For Release of Nickel

This ready to use solution is used in the test method for release of nickle from all post assembles which are inserted into pierced parts of the human body and articles intended to come into direct and prolonged contact with skin. This non-stabilized version is kept frozen. (Custom pH and stabilized versions available)

DIN 53160-2 2010-10 Artificial Perspiration

Colorfastness of Articles for Common Use

This ready to use solution is used in the test method to determine colorfastness of articles for common use to perspiration. This non-stabilized version is kept frozen. (Custom pH version available)

ANSI-BHMA A156.18 Artificial Perspiration

For Testing Builders Hardware

This ready to use solution is used in the test method specified by the builder's hardware association. (Custom pH version available)

ASTM D4265-14 Artificial Sebum

Laundry Care Products for Household Use and Other Applications

This ready to use Artificial Sebum is for Laundry Care products for household use.  The non-stabilized formulation is kept frozen.

Buyers Guide

Artificial Perspiration Buyers Guide

Makers of smart watches, high performance textiles, biosensors, heads up displays, and fitness monitors all have one thing in common – the need to test their products for quality assurance. Personal electronics and wearable technology manufacturers perform sweat testing on materials including touch screens, watchbands, keyboards, eyeglasses, and any other product material or surface that would benefit from guaranteed reproducible results with artificial perspiration. By using Pickering Laboratories’ artificial eccrine perspiration, our customers are able to save time and ensure the same repeatable results anywhere, anytime.

Normally, a sweat mimic is prepared at the time of the test according to an industry specific formula. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) describes procedures to test many products in the presence of a sweat mimic. According to Michael Pickering, Founder/Owner of Pickering Laboratories, "we were guided by the multiplicity of such tests to develop an artificial perspiration that can yield reproducible results independent of the test."

Pickering Artificial Eccrine Perspiration is the closest mimic available to actual eccrine perspiration, and we prepare two versions. The stabilized version has a preservative which prevents microbial growth and can then be stored at room temperature. The not stabilized version has no preservative and must be kept frozen until you intend to use it. You may need this version if you are testing a product that claims to prevent microbial growth or odor from perspiration. Our Artificial Eccrine Perspiration normally comes at pH 4.5, however, we can make it custom from pH 3.0 – 9.0.
