Luer System/Luer Lock Connectors (ISO 80369 Part 7 and 20)

Based on the ISO 80369 standard, various tests are used to test a Luer system or Luer lock connector for stability—ZwickRoell offers the right testing system.

  • The Luer cone is a standardized connector system used in tube systems in the medical industry. It is used with cannulas, syringes, catheters, three-way stopcocks, and infusion tubes. The seal is achieved through a conical fitting, called a Luer cone. The Luer lock connector also has a threaded sleeve to achieve a tight connection so fluids cannot escape.
  • For quality control of these components, a materials testing machine with superimposed torsion drive is used.
  • Based on the ISO 80369 standard, various tests are used to test a Luer system or Luer lock connector for stability. It is possible to easily determine torques under static axial load with the superimposed axial/torsion drive of a zwickiLine torsion materials testing machine.
  • With the integrated compression fixture, the seal integrity tests required by the standard can be performed.
