SYRINGEABILITY can be
considered to be the ability of a product to be successfully
administered by a syringe and appropriate needle.
Syringes are used in hospitals,
surgeries and homes around the world on a daily basis, and for a
multitude of purposes. Successful administration, as well as
comfortable receipt of the material under the skin, rely on the
effective tracking of the syringe piston within its outer tube. By
testing the ease with which an injectable solution is expressed,
manufacturers are able to optimise usability and patient comfort,
while guaranteeing quality control and product safety.
Manufacturers can also determine
the force required to remove the plunger from the syringe, thus
emulating the ease with which the syringe piston is withdrawn.

measurement. We can, of course, design and manufacture probes or
fixtures that are bespoke to your sample and its specific measurement.
Once your measurement is
performed, our expertise in its graphical interpretation is
unparalleled no-one understands texture analysis like we do.
Not only can we develop the most suitable and accurate method for the
testing of your sample, but we can prepare analysis procedures that
obtain the desired parameters from your curve and drop them into a
spreadsheet or report designed around your requirements.
