Method Muscle interstitial pH was measured continuously in microdialysis dialysate using the pH-sensitive fluorescent dye 2fi,7fi-bis-(2- carboxyethyl)-5-(and -6)-carboxyfluorescein (BCECF).
Comments The interstitial pH at rest (7.38 ± 0.02) fell within the range (7.37–7.43) of femoral venous pH values reported in the literature. "Microdialysis dialysates of interstitial fluid were collected continuously from the quadriceps muscles of six healthy adult males at rest and during exercise. pH in the dialysates was measured using the pH sensitive probe BCECF. Mean interstitial pH at rest was 7.38±0.02" quote from PMID 22768925
