New Syringe Test Fixture Helps Control Flow

November 9, 2010
Company has recently released a number of new test fixtures for use with their texture analyzer. The unit precisely measures the force required to push or pull the syringe plunger. From vaccines to dental adhesives, many inject-able products are now distributed in pre-filled syringes, which must allow for good flow control during discharge. This information can be very important to the pre-filled syringe market or to manufacturers of custom syringe products. The syringe test fixture is designed for the manufacturer’s texture analyzer. It features both compression- and tension-modes, which allow companies to complete a wide range of tests. In addition to their current variety of test fixtures, the manufacturer works with customers to develop custom equipment for their specific texture measurement applications.
