OPTIONS FOR PERFORMING THE IDDSI FLOW TEST
As you may be aware, IDDSI has been working on a purposed-design funnel for easy and standard testing of thickened liquids. However the production of the IDDSI funnels in China has encountered difficulties reaching their internal quality-control performance checks when producing large production runs.
At the meantime, IDDSI would like to draw attention to a
syringe available in Europe
which is suitable for carrying out an IDDSI flow test.
BD 305959 has a Luer-lok screw thread around the outside of the nozzle, however it has the same internal nozzle dimensions as the US syringe 303134, therefore will give the same results. The IDDSI funnel has been designed with these dimensions too.
