ILS produces glass syringes in volumes ranging from μL to 100 mL. The menu encompasses microliter syringes ( μL, 1 μL, 2 μL, 5 μL, 10 μL, μL, 25 μL, 50 μL, 100 μL, 125 μL, 250 μL and 500 μL) to milliliter microsyringes ( mL, mL, mL, mL, mL, 10 mL, mL, 25 mL, 50 mL and 100 mL). ILS’s glass syringes are in tested in accordance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) protocols and utilize equipment that is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards. The company also offers needles; accessories, such as fittings, guides, flange tools, cleaning wires, racks, and washers; replacement rotary valves for pump drives; and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) drive pumps.
Which pen needle is the best insulin pen needle? The one that causes the least pain while delivering insulin most effectively. The shortest and finest pen needle will be the least painful. It may also relieve anxiety that you may have at first about needles and injecting insulin.
A good starting pen needle choice for someone beginning insulin would be either a four or five mm pen needle. These shorter needle lengths are effective for people of all sizes and ages. These are long enough to pass through the skin into the subcutaneous tissue, but short enough not to penetrate the underlying muscle layer. The short needle length also means no skin lift is needed. Putting the needle straight in at a 90 degree angle will not push the needle tip into muscle tissue.
The connection between the needle and the syringe can play an important role in the selection process. Some syringe-needle combinations are detachable while others are fixed in which the needle is permanently attached to the syringe. For instance, many diabetic syringe needles are non-detachable and these type of syringe-needle combos are less expensive. More syringe and needle combinations are manufactured to be detachable, allowing more flexibility and choices between what syringe you use and what needle you attached to the syringe. There are several different types of connection hubs or syringe tips. The most popular syringe tips include Luer Lock tips, slip tips, eccentric tips and catheter tips. See Syringe & Needle Tip Selection for an infographic displaying the different types of syringe tips. Each syringe tip has a corresponding needle hub that connects with it. These connections are not interchangeable. In other words, you cannot connect a Luer Lock needle hub to a catheter tip syringe. If you purchase a slip tip syringe, you should also purchase a slip tip type needle.
