An autoinjector is a medical instrument, which is used for single-dose administration of a particular drug. The medicine is preconditioned in the injector so that it can be easily and safely injected in case of an emergency. Since this is a matter concerning human health, it goes without saying that quality control of these autoinjectors is paramount.
Part of the quality control process is to determine proper function of the autoinjector. The force to remove the cap, the actuation force, measurement of injection time, injection depth and the dispensed volume, as well as the determination of blocking force of the needle shield are all parameters that must be tested. These tests help ensure that the autoinjector can be easily and efficiently used in case of an emergency. For many years, among other things, ZwickRoell has specialized in testing of such autoinjectors, so for the customer the decision to work with ZwickRoell was obvious.
