Intravenous Infusion Set and Accessory Testing

Intravenous infusion sets have a large range of complexity and functionality, and as such, there are a variety of test requirements depending on the set and its accessory components to ensure that they’re compatible with infusion containers and IV equipment. ISO 8536 is the governing standard that specifies the testing requirements for infusion sets, infusion containers and infusion set accessories.
