Syringe Barrel Types we Supply
Okay, so there are different needles but are there different types of medical syringes? Of course there are. While there are predominantly two different types of needles, there are roughly 5 common syringe types and they include:
1. Luer Lock Syringe Suppliers
Just like the Luer lock needles; these syringe barrels have a threaded tip that allows for the Luer lock needles to be screwed on securely. Other types of needles will not securely fit this type of syringe.
2. Normal Slip Tip Syringe Suppliers
These syringe barrels allow the needle to slip over the tip and compress for easy installation/removal. These can also be referred to as Luer slip syringes.
3. Catheter Tip Syringe Suppliers
This type of syringe is often used when injecting through a tube or where a regular slip tip needle is larger than a standard slip tip. These are good for injecting into things where the tapered tip can form a tight seal. These can even be used to rinse out wounds or large abscesses in a veterinary setting.
4. Eccentric Tip Syringe Suppliers
When you need to inject something parallel to the skin, an eccentric tip syringe is commonly used. The tip is in line with the outer body of the barrel and is perfect for injecting into a vein and not penetrating both walls of the vein.
5. Insulin Syringe Suppliers
One of the more common types of syringes, these are for single use and are inexpensive. They commonly have a U-100 marking on them that indicates the concentration of 100 units of insulin per 1 ml. and often incorporate a fine needle.
