The test fixture is used to determine the plunger actuation force of sterile single-use syringes made from plastic and other materials for medical purposes, with fluid contents(water) to EN ISO 7886-1 Annex E (2017).The test fixture consists of an upper and a lower clamping device to hold the syringe and a height-adjustable fluid reservoir. During the test the fluid of the filled syringe is intended to be pushed out into the reservoir via a standard needle (18G). The needle is connected to the hose via a Luer connector. During the test the plunger travel, the breakaway force, as well as the maximum and the average glide force are recorded and evaluated via ZwickRoell testing software.
