Official results of Mucus pro: Secretion of snail mucus in Archachatina Marginata
Commissioned by S&T SNAIL PRODUCTION (Nigeria) Practical studies of the secretion of snail mucus: Archachatina Marginata were carried out on equipment for the secretion of snail mucus Mucus pro.
The land snail Archachatina Marginata (habitat – Africa) is the most “Dry” snail in terms of the amount of mucus production in the wild.
The test secretion was carried out in the Mucus pro laboratory in Poland.
Snail: Archachatina Marginata,average weight of one snail: 200-300 g.
Equipment: Snail mucus extractor “Mucus pro 2.40”;
Operator: Sole trader BILA M.;
Secretions time: 1.5 hours;
Ozonation time: 4 minutes;
The total weight of the snail: 2.9 kg;
Secretions mode: “Industrial”;
Weight (NET) of raw slime obtained: 468 g.
Secretion performance: 16.2% pure mucus by weight of the snail.
The smallest sublimation shrinkage of snail Archachatina Marginata mucus: the yield of dry mucus powder from liquid mucus is 4% (this is the largest indicator among all snails).
Conclusion: The snail mucus extractor “Mucus pro” extracts mucus from the snail Archachatina Marginata, with a short secretion time, with a capacity of 16% pure mucus, without additives from the total weight of the snail.
The mucus of the snail Archachatina Marginata has not been previously extracted and studied on an industrial scale.
After laboratory tests and mucus lyophilization, Mucus pro company will report the product’s performance.
