1. A connector for medical liquid-containing packages, in particular infusion or transfusion bags, comprising:

  • a connection part, which has a channel-shaped recess in which a self-sealing membrane is arranged, whereby the channel-shaped recess has a package-side lower opening and a connection-side upper opening;

    a break-off part, which closes the channel-shaped recess and is connected to the connection part above the connection-side opening;

    wherein the connection part comprises a connection piece extending above the self-sealing membrane, whereby the self-sealing membrane is slit so as to receive the conical shaft of a syringe in a sealing fashion and wherein the connection piece and the self-sealing membrane of the connection part are designed and arranged in such a way that the conical shaft of a syringe inserted into the connection-side opening opens the slit membrane, but does not penetrate the slit of the self-sealing membrane.
