German term or phrase: Kolbenbremse
I can't offer much context for this one, as it appears in a diagram for a syringe that used as part of a vapour pressure osmometer. The word is used in isolation. I think it refers to the rubber thingy that you have in syringes to stop the plunger going in too far, but it seems to be a seldom-used word in German, and "plunger brake" isn't really used in English contexts for syringes. TIA for your assistance.

plunger arrester
Explanation:
I think this is a possbility...

n still another embodiment, the present invention provides hand-operated injection systems for injection of a precisely controlled volume of a therapeutic fluid in a sterile condition. In this embodiment, the invention hand-operated injection systems comprise in sterile, fluid-tight communication:

a) a sterile container, said sterile container comprising:

an elongated liquid-tight housing with an opening of reduced size relative to the housing; wherein the interior surface the housing defines a sterile fluid chamber

a self-sealing puncturable sterile barrier covering the opening for receiving a hollow needle cannula, and

a hand-operated plunger constructed and arranged within said chamber for reciprocal motion within the chamber;

b) an injection syringe, said injection syringe comprising:

an elongated barrel having an inner surface defining a fluid chamber and a distal fluid port,

a plunger constructed and arranged within said fluid chamber for reciprocal motion within the fluid chamber;

c) an adjustable ** plunger arrester ** positioned with respect to the syringe plunger so as to precisely and adjustably control proximal travel of the plunger;

d) a needle connector comprising a hollow needle cannula and connector for attachment of a hollow injection needle; and

e) one way liquid flow valves for directing discrete liquid flow from the opening of the sterile container via the puncturable, sterile barrier into the distal fluid port of the syringe and from the fluid port of the syringe into the needle connect

The Digital Syringe is a calibrated device composed of a serialized syringe and a serialized digital
electronic holder. A certificate of calibration accompanies the unit. A digital readout allows enhanced
syringe volume readability, while an adjustable ** plunger stop ** assures accurate, reproducible sample
injections. The device also reduces the possibility of plunger bending. Suggested uses of the Digital
Syringe include standard and sample preparation, GC injection, HPLC partial loop filling, titration, and
calibration of gas analyzers.

  -> Thank you, SwissTell! I realized later that "stop" is the term used to describe the mechanism used for accurate-amount delivery.

agree  casper: '(syringe) plunger stop'
