    100% (neat) concentration

    Buen día,

    En los resultados de una prueba de laboratorio aparece esta frase:

    "Extracts prepared with complete MEM were tested at 100% (neat) concentration."

    Lo estoy traduciendo como:
    Los extractos preparados en medio esencial mínimo (MEM) completo se sometieron a prueba en una concentración 100% (limpia).

    Mi duda es si "limpia" es la palabra correcta para "neat". ¿podría también ser "clara"?

    Gracias de antemano,
    Morning Mist

    P.D. ¿podría usar "pura"?

    Hola. Yo diría: "Se estudiaron extractos preparados con MEM completo a una concentración del 100% (neta)".

    I agree that "limpia" would not work in this case. In this context "neat" means "undiluted" though that use is usually found only in discussion of alcoholic beverages.

    Hi, Bill

    In fact, I found this term just as you have mentioned. Since this refers to a step in a lab test, I was not sure if I could use the same term at it is used for alcoholic beverages.

    Thank you so much!
