Tensile Testing Medical Tubing and Catheters using AutoX750 from Instron

This video shows the tensile testing medical tubing and catheters using AutoX750 from Instron. Medical catheters are inserted into canals, vessels, passageways, or body cavities usually to inject or remove fluids from the body. Failure of these devices could result in severe patient injury.

Correct gripping of a medical catheter is a delicate balance between holding the material in place while avoiding premature specimen damage. The AutoX 750 has the ability to graduate the clamping force such that this damage is avoided.
