Tuberculin Syringes and Insulin Syringes are small with fine (high gauge) needles that are used to inject antigen solution or insulin medication.

Syringes and Needles

Sun Surgical Supply provides medical professionals with a wide range of Hypodermic, Insulin, Tuberculin (TB) and Blood Collection Syringes and Needles that meet OSHA Standards

Different models of needles may come permanently attached to the syringe or they may be separate and require assembly. The width of the needle is known as the needle gauge. The higher the number of the needle gauge, the thinner the needle. A variety of syringes and needles are used for the injection of medication. Tuberculin Syringes and Insulin Syringes are small with fine (high gauge) needles that are used to inject antigen solution or insulin medication. Hypodermic needles may be used for injections or for collecting fluids such as collecting a blood sample from a vein. They are used for rapid delivery of liquids when medication cannot be ingested or absorbed.

Understanding the differences in various syringes and needles is vital in selecting the appropriate device in which to administer medication or for blood collection. For instance, a Tuberculin (TB) syringe can not be used in the place of an Insulin Syringe. This is because the units of measure are different for these two types of needles. A TB Syringe is also shorter than an Insulin Syringe as TB Test antigen solution is administered "intradermally" (within the skin/between the layers of the skin). Insulin Needles use a longer needle because insulin is administered "subcutaneously" (under the skin). No matter what type of syringe is being used, the actual procedure for using the syringe is similar and an aseptic (sterile) technique is absolutely essential.

Needles and syringes are essential tools for medical practitioners administering quality care for their patients. It is also essential that people who administer injections receive appropriate safety training regarding use and safe disposal. Syringes and needles must be handled by qualified professionals and never be shared or reused. Check with your local Health Department for safe disposal locations.
