What is dimensional analysis testing?

Dimensional analysis ensures that all product dimensions meet specification, as defined by industry standards or by the Customer. Outlined below are the tests utilized by Anecto Test Services.

Luer lock

Anecto has a full suite of tests for Luer taper and Luer lock fittings.

Anecto’s Luer test capabilities include the following:

  • Gauging: to check the dimensions of a Luer
  • Liquid leakage: tests leaks under pressure
  • Air leakage: tests leaks under pressure
  • Separation force: tests attachment to the reference fitting when a load is applied
  • Resistance to overriding: tests the threads of the fitting
  • Stress cracking: tests Luer crack in the 48 hours following assembly
  • Unscrewing torque (Luer lock only): tests whether the sample Luer remains attached under a specific unscrewing (counter-clockwise) torque
  • Ease of assembly (Luer lock only)

Benefits of Luer compliance testing:

  • Higher quality medical devices if Luer compliant
  • Testing exposes product weaknesses
  • Better compatibility with industry-standard connecting devices if Luer compliant
  • Air and liquid leak prevention are ESSENTIAL in medical devices
  • Exposes any issues in the molding or machining process

All tests are carried out by Anecto Test Services to ensure your product is compliant to international gauging standards. The gauges used by Anecto all have ISO17025 traceable calibration. Other assembly and pressure test equipment used offer repeatable testing. The procedures employed by Anecto are in compliance with ISO 80369-7, ISO 594-1, ISO 594-2, EN 1707 and EN 20594-1 standards.
