Tissue Fluid is the solution which surrounds cells. 

At the arterial end of the capillary bed the blood is still at high pressure and so blood plasma is forced out through the permeable walls of the capillary. Tissue fluid is formed by pressure filtration not diffusion.

Materials are exchanged between the tissue fluid and the cells by all 4 methods of transport:

Lipid diffusion


Facilitated diffusion

Active transport
