Medical Multi-Lumen Catheter Leak and Flow Testing - Case Study
A medical device manufacturer needed a test instrument to test single, dual, triple and quadruple lumen CVC & PICC Catheters with female Luer fittings. The distal ends of these Catheters are tipped and skive holes cut into each lumen. The manufacturer requested automated testing that would be initiated by the operator and run through the complete test without operator intervention. Each lumen is independently tested for cross-over leaks between lumens, exterior leaks and grade the degree of blockage of each lumen. The device manufacturer also wanted the flexibility to simultaneously run either: 4 single lumen catheters, 2 dual lumen catheters, or either 1 triple or 1 quadruple lumen catheter each test cycle.
