Experiments studying cardiovascular geometries require a working fluid that matches the high index of refraction of glass and silicone, has a low viscosity, and is safe and inexpensive. A good candidate working fluid is diethyl phthalate (DEP), diluted with ethanol. Measurements were made of index of refraction and viscosity of varied dilutions at a range of temperatures, and empirical models are proposed. Material compatibility tests showed that only specific formulations of ABS, acrylic, vinyl and PVC are compatible. A silicone elastomer additionally tested negative for change in compliance with DEP exposure.
