ISO 7886-1 Annex E Syringe Tester ( Piston Operation Extrusion Force )
ISO 7886-1: Sterile hypodermic syringes for single use — Part 1: Syringes for manual use (Extrusion Force)
ISO 7886-1 Annex E fig E.2:
ISO 7886-1 specifies requirements and test methods for verifying the design of empty sterile single-use hypodermic syringes, with or without needle, made of plastic or other materials and intended for the aspiration and injection of fluids after filling by the end-users. This document does not provide requirements for lot release. The syringes are primarily for use in humans.
Sterile syringes specified in this document are intended for use immediately after filling and are not intended to contain the medicament for extended periods of time.
It excludes syringes for use with insulin (see ISO 8537), single-use syringes made of glass, syringes for use with power-driven syringe pumps, syringes pre-filled by the manufacturer, and syringes intended to be stored after filling (e.g. in a kit for filling by a pharmacist).
Hypodermic syringes without a needle specified in this document are intended for use with hypodermic needles specified in ISO 7864.
ISO 7886-2:Sterile hypodermic syringes for single use — Part 2: Syringes for use with power-driven syringe pumps
Specifies requirements for sterile single-use hypodermic syringes of nominal capacity 5 ml and above, made of plastics materials and intended for use with power-driven syringe pumps. Does not apply to syringes for use with insulin, single-use syringes made of glass, syringes prefilled with the injection by the manufacturer and syringes supplied with the injection as a doctors kid.
This document specifies the properties and performance of sterile single-use hypodermic syringes with an auto-disable syringe feature intended to deliver a fixed dose of vaccine immediately after filling. The syringes can be made of plastic, rubber or other materials and can be with or without needle and needle protection feature.
This document does not specify the design of the auto-disable syringe feature.
This document is not applicable to syringes for use with insulin (covered by ISO 8537), syringes for use with power-driven syringe pumps (covered by ISO 7886-2), reuse prevention syringes (covered by ISO 7886-4) or syringes designed to be prefilled (covered by the ISO 11040 series). It does not address compatibility with injection fluids/vaccines.
This document specifies requirements for sterile single-use hypodermic syringes made of plastic and rubber materials with or without needle, and intended for the aspiration of fluids or for the injection of fluids immediately after filling and of design such that the syringe can be rendered unusable after use.
This document is not applicable to syringes made of glass [specified in ISO 595 (withdrawn)], auto-disable syringes for fixed dose immunization (ISO 7886‑3) and syringes designed to be pre-filled. It does not address compatibility with injection fluids. Other standards can be applicable when syringes are used for any other intended purpose than those specified in this document.
NOTE Syringes designed to reduce the risk of needle-stick injuries can also comply with this document with regard to their re-use prevention properties, but it is stressed that anti-needle-stick properties of syringes are not in themselves addressed in this document.
