Title (German)

Transfusionsgeräte zur medizinischen Verwendung - Teil 5: Transfusionsgeräte zur einmaligen Verwendung mit Druckinfusionsapparaten (ISO 1135-5:2015); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 1135-5:2015


This part of ISO 1135 specifies requirements for single use transfusion sets for use with pressure infusion equipment capable of generating pressures up to 200 kPa (2 bar). The standard ensures compatibility with containers for blood and blood components as well as intravenous equipment. Additional aims of this part of ISO 1135 are to provide guidance on specifications relating to the quality and performance of materials used in transfusion sets, to present designations for transfusion set components, and to ensure the compatibility of sets with red cell and plasma blood components. Platelet components should not be transfused under pressure using these sets. In some countries, the national pharmacopoeia or other national regulations are legally binding and take precedence over this part of ISO 1135. This standard differs from DIN EN ISO 1135-5:2012-06 as follows: a) the scope has been restricted to pressure infusion applications and the whole document aligned accordingly; transfusion sets for single use used in conjunction with gravity feed applications are now dealt with in Part 4 of the standards series; b) Subclause 3.3 “Designation” has been deleted; c) Clause 8 “Labelling” has been restructured to bring it into line with the current specifications of the European Commissison; d) normative references and the Bibliography have been updated; e) the European Annex ZA has been updated and brought in line with the current specifications of the European Commission; f) finally, some minor editorial changes have been introduced throughout the document. European Standard EN ISO 1135-5 has been prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 76 "Transfusion, infusion and injection, and blood processing equipment for medical and pharmaceutical use" in collaboration with Technical Committee CEN/TC 205 "Non-active medical devices" with the participation of German experts. The responsible national committee is Working Committee NA 063-02-02 AA "Transfusions-/Infusionsbehältnisse und geräte aus Kunststoffen und Einmalprobengefäße für die In-vitro-Diagnostik" ("Transfusion/infusion containers and equipment made from plastics and disposable sample containers for the in-vitro diagnostics") at DIN Standards Committee Medicine (NAMed).
