ISO 80369-6:2016 Connectors for neuraxial applications

What is the ISO 80369-6 standard?

This part of ISO 80369 includes the dimensions and requirements for the design and functional performance of small-bore connectors for use in neuraxial applications, including connectors for devices for administering anaesthesia except those for local anaesthesia injected hypodermically.

Performance testing of ISO 80369-6 Neuraxial connectors

The ISO 80369-6 standard includes performance tests following the methods of the ISO 80369-20 standard. Enersol has the reference connectors for ISO 80369-6, and the test equipment needed for the performance tests (ISO 80369-20).

Enersol can supply its reference connectors and test equipment, or for early stage testing/small lot testing this can be performed by Enersol in its ISO 17025 accredited laboratory.

The reference connectors are made from stainless steel and are designed to be used with Enersol ISO 80369-20 testing equipment and devices.

Enersol's ISO 80369-6:2016 reference connectors are made from stainless steel and have been designed to be used with Enersol testing equipment and devices. On request, Enersol can supply adapters to fit the reference connectors to machines other than Enersol's.

The reference connectors have a hex grip area with 9mm flats (for use in Enersol test equipment). The hex grip has an internal M5 thread. On request, reference connectors can be made to order with threads other than M5 either internal or external, as requested. Alternatively, adapters can be supplied to convert to a different thread type.

Reference connectors that are used for leakage tests are shipped with push-in fittings for use with 4mm hoses, making them fast and easy to use with Enersol testing equipment.

Provided with the reference connectors are individual wooden display boxes and long-form calibration certificates by an ISO 17025 accredited calibration laboratory (at no extra cost or lead).
