Anecto Test Services has a full suite of tests for small-bore connector (Luer taper and Luer lock) fittings.

Anecto’s test capabilities include the following:

Luer Lock Testing

  • Fluid leakage by pressure decay (ISO 80369-20 Annex B)
  • Falling drop positive pressure liquid leakage (ISO 80369-20 Annex C)
  • Sub-atmospheric pressure air leakage test ((ISO 80369-20 Annex D)
  • Stress cracking (ISO 80369-20 Annex E)
  • Resistance to separation from axial load (ISO 80369-20 Annex F)
  • Resistance to separation from unscrewing (ISO 80369-20 Annex G)
  • Resistance to overriding (ISO 80369-20 Annex H)
  • Dimensional analysis

Benefits of Luer compliance testing:

  • Higher quality medical devices if Luer compliant
  • Testing exposes product weaknesses
  • Better compatibility 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 to ensure your product is compliant to international gauging standards. The gauges used by Anecto all have ISO 17025 traceable calibration. Other assembly and pressure test equipment used offer repeatable testing.
