Industry Specific Artificial Saliva
Pickering Laboratories’ Artificial Saliva is Formulated to Test Products for Colorfastness and Biodegradability of Dental Metal Alloys
Pickering Labs also offers other artificial bodily fluids for product testing and research. We manufacture several formulations of artificial saliva based on official testing methods as well as published scientific data. To increase the stability of some products during storage, several Pickering Labs artificial saliva formulations come as 2-part formulations that need to be combined before use. Custom formulations to accommodate specific pH or ingredient requirements are also available upon request.
Fusayama/Meyer Artificial Saliva
FOR TESTING OF PRODUCTS FOR CORROSION, COLORFASTNESS AND DISCOLORATION
This ready-to-use solution closely resembles the mineral composition of natural saliva and can be used for testing a wide variety of products, including dental metal alloys. This formulation is at pH 4.9 and should be stored refrigerated.
AFNOR NF S91-141 Artificial Saliva
FOR TESTING BIODEGRADABILITY OF DENTAL METAL ALLOYS
Artificial Saliva is prepared according to AFNOR NF S91-141 standard procedure and is intended for testing biodegradability of dental metal alloys. The formulation consists of two parts that are mixed right before use. This minimizes changes in the solution during storage and allows for a longer shelf life. The pH of the solution after mixing is 7.8. The Artificial Saliva should be stored refrigerated both before and after mixing. Premixed, ready-to-use solution is available upon request.
DIN 53160-1:2010-10 Artificial Saliva
TO DETERMINE COLORFASTNESS OF PRODUCTS INTENDED TO BE TAKEN INTO THE MOUTH
Artificial Saliva is prepared according to DIN 531601:2010-10 standard procedure. DIN 53160 specifies the method to determine colorfastness of products intended to be taken into the mouth. The formulation consists of two parts that are mixed right before use. This minimizes changes in the solution during storage and allows for a longer shelf life. The solution should be stored frozen both before and after mixing. The pH of the solution after mixing is 6.8.
Artificial Saliva for Pharmaceutical Research
Artificial Saliva is formulated according to literature for pharmaceutical research such as studies of drug dissolution and drug delivery through oral mucosa. This is a ready to use formulation that should be stored refrigerated. The pH of the solution is 6.8.
Artificial Saliva for Medical and Dental Research
This Artificial Saliva is formulated according to literature references for medical and dental research. This formulation has similar composition to commercially available products used to treat dry mouth and other conditions. This ready-to-use solution contains Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose to increase viscosity of the solution and make it behave similar to natural human saliva. This formulation can be stored at room temperature and has pH of 6.8. This solution is only intended for product testing and research, and not for medical use.

Cerumen, also known as ear wax, is a waxy substance secreted in the ear canal that protects and lubricates the ear canal and assists in cleaning by trapping dirt and dead skin cells. Pickering Laboratories offers artificial ear wax that can be used for testing of hearing aids, ear buds and other electronic devices meant to be used in the ears.
