ISO 80369 Small bore connectors, Syringes, Needles, Catheters, and more..

What is the ISO 80369 series, and what is it used for?

The ISO 80369 series of standards was introduced due to the need to prevent accidental connections between different medical lines, through a range of different types of small bore connectors. ISO 594 was the seed from which the ISO 80369 series was grown.

Accidental mis-connections in healthcare resulted in serious injury and even death. ISO 80369-1 was published in 2010 to describe the purpose and eventual set up of the ISO 80369 series. The series will include standards relating to small-bore connectors for breathing systems and driving gases, enteral and gastric, urethral and urinary, limb cuff inflation, neuraxial devices, and intravascular or hypodermic

Enersol Reference Connectors and Gauges

Enersol's 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).
