Interstitial fluid (also known as tissue fluid) is the fluid containing proteins and other solutes that surround the cells of an organism. Interstitial fluid is the main component of extracellular fluid and makes up around 15% of adults mass[1]. It is created by transcapillary filtration and it is filtered through the lyphmatic system[2].
