Testing of syringes for use with power-driven syringe pumps - ISO 7886-2

Sterile hypodermic syringes for single use — Part 2: Syringes for use with power-driven Syringe Pumps


The ISO 7886-2 standard specifies requirements and test methods for sterile single-use hypodermic syringes of nominal capacity 1 ml and above, made of plastics materials and intended for use with power-driven syringe pumps.

The following performance characteristics are to be investigated:

  • Dead space
  • Freedom from air and liquid leakage past the plunger stopper
  • Short-term flow rate error
  • Pump forces
  • Syringe compliance
