Advanced Capabilities for Testing Medical Needles on an MCR

Beside standard tribological setups the Universal Testing Machine Micro is capable to cover a wide range of required applications. With the help of a newly designed measuring setup for medical needles, it is possible to realize quality control as well as improvements regarding geometry and needle materials.

Medical equipment and devices must meet high safety standards. To ensure that the equipment can be used sensitively and, above all, safely by medical employees, the quality of the products must be checked sufficiently. Medical needles have to meet special requirements in this respect, as they come into direct contact with the human body. In this report medical needles were tested by varying environmental conditions and test parameters. In addition, the method was tested with different needles and septa to evaluate the versatility of the test setup.
