Comparison of the rheological properties of Advantage-S and Replens.


Journal Article

The rheological properties of Advantage-S and Replens were measured at body (37 degrees C) and room temperature (25 degrees C) over a range of physiologically relevant shear rates. The viscosity of Replens was found to differ from that of Advantage-S, particularly at room temperature. In addition, the two materials differed in their miscibility with a vaginal fluid simulant.
