Testing the Lubricity Track Force of Catheters

The coefficient of friction of cardiovascular and urological catheters must be tested when they are wet. To do this, the catheter is removed from a temperature-controlled water bath through jaws which are closed with a defined gripping force. These jaws can be opened and closed automatically to produce a repeated cyclic test. In addition, the jaws can be changed quickly to facilitate various lubricity surfaces for tests.
