Standard name: Conical fittings with a 6 % (Luer) taper for syringes, needles and certain other medical equipment - Part 1: General requirements (ISO 594-1: 1986).
Applicable medical devices:
This standard applies to conical (Luer) fittings for use with hypodermic syringes and needles and covers components constructed from rigid and semi-rigid materials.
Testing capabilities to ISO 594-1 include:
- Gauging test
- Liquid leakage from the conical fitting assembly under pressure
- Air leakage into the conical fitting assembly during aspiration
- Separation force of conical fitting assembly
- Stress cracking for conical fitting.
In many instances, testing requirements are beyond the test method parameters set out in a standard. Alongside our standard testing services, our expert team is able to develop a custom testing program to meet your specific testing requirements and resolve and design or functionality issues you might have.
Please note: This standard has been withdrawn by the International Organization for Standardization and is revised by ISO 80369-7:2016. See also BS 20594-1:1993.
