The Definitive Guide to Syringe Testing Per ISO 11040 & ISO 7886
Within the pharmaceutical industry, mechanical testing is mainly comprised of primary containers and combination products. The most common application by far is testing required for syringes. While simple in design, the number of functional and usability tests required can be overwhelming for labs new to these kinds of evaluations. This definitive guide aims to identify the key metrics to assess syringe performance, the most common standards followed internationally, and the ideal fixturing for various syringe types.
ISO 7886 is a testing standard that regulates the mechanical properties of hypodermic syringes and outlines the specifications for single use hypodermic syringes. This video provides a brief overview of annexes D and E, which must be performed on universal testing machines.
