ISO 80369-7:2016 Connectors with 6% (Luer) taper for intravascular or hypodermic applications What is the ISO 80369-7 standard? What happened to ISO 594-1 and ISO 594-2?
The ISO 80369-7 standard is for small-bore connectors for use in intravascular applications or hypodermic connections. The ISO 80369-7 standard cancelled and replaced ISO 594-1:1986 and ISO 594-2:1998, and their content, which have been consolidated and technically revised in ISO 80369-7.
It is likely that ISO 594-1 and ISO 594-2 have some life left in them, and will continued to be used for some time as they are also referenced in other standards, such as the ISO 7886 series for syringes. Those standards are also being revised.
Some countries also refer to ISO 594-1 and ISO 594-2 in legislation and similar. In time, the ISO 80369 series will be used universally.
Performance testing of ISO 80369-7 Luer connectors
The ISO 80369-7 standard includes performance tests following the methods of the ISO 80369-20 standard. KingPo has the reference connectors and the test equipment needed for the performance tests (ISO 80369-20).
KingPo can supply its reference connectors and test equipment, or for early stage testing/small lot testing this can be performed by KingPo in its ISO 17025 accredited laboratory.

KingPo reference connectors for ISO 80369-7:2016
KingPo's reference connectors have been designed specifically to meet requirements of ISO 80369-7. These reference connectors are backwards compatible with ISO 594-1:1986 and ISO 594-2:1998.
KingPo currently makes its reference connectors for ISO 80369-7 and dual certifies them for use with for ISO 80369-7, and the ISO 594-1 / ISO 594-2 standards. In time, once ISO 80369-7 is universally adopted the certification will only reference ISO 80369-7.

KingPo's reference connectors are made from stainless steel and have been designed to be used with KingPo testing equipment and devices. On request, KingPo can supply adapters to fit the reference connectors to machines other than KingPo's.
The reference connectors have a hex grip area with 10mm flats (for use in KingPo 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 KingPo testing equipment.
Provided with the reference connectors are individual display boxes and long-form calibration certificates by an ISO 17025 accredited calibration laboratory (at no extra cost or lead).
