Disposable Syringes for Surgeries and Hospitals
At Praxisdienst, we offer a large selection of standard syringes, fine dosage syringes, insulin syringes, tuberculin syringes, irrigation syringes as well as oral single-use syringes from renowned manufacturers, including B.Braun, Becton Dickinson, Teqler or Dispomed Witt. Many of our supplies are PVC-free or latex-free, which makes them ideal for patients with allergies. We have listed the most important differences between the syringe types below.
Standard disposable plastic syringes are either available as 2-part or 3-part models. 2-part syringes consist of a transparent cylinder with piston and can be found in various sizes. They are very versatile and can be used, e.g. to inject medication. The Inject Disposable Syringes from B.Braun, for example, have a safe plunger stop and a smudge-proof ml-graduation.
3-part syringes are additionally equipped with gaskets (or O-rings), which ensure that the plunger is particularly smooth-running and to facilitate injection of smaller quantities. Standard syringes are individually, sterile packed and are supplied without a needle. In addition to common Luer syringes, where the needle is pushed onto the tip of the disposable syringe, we offer Luer-Lock syringes, where the needle is twisted onto the tip. The Omnifix Disposable Syringes with slip tip and the Omnifix Solo Disposable Syringes are particularly popular, due to their high-contrast and non-smearing scale and secure pump stop. The polypropylene syringes are siliconised on the inside to for smooth filling and injections.
Fine Dosing Syringes
In contrast to standard medical syringes, fine dosing syringes have a volume of only 1 ml. With help of the extra detailed graduation of the scale (0.01 ml), even the smallest amounts of medicine can be drawn up with precision. Often, the fine dosing syringes, such as the Injekt F are equipped with a displacement spike to reduce dead space volume or a double seal ring to facilitate injection. The BD Plastipak Syringes with silicone oil lubricant, on the other hand, can be combined with any Luer needle to use them as a tuberculin or heparin syringe.
Insulin is administered subcutaneously either via insulin pump, insulin pen or a single-use insulin syringe.
Insulin pens are preferred by most diabetic patients because they are extremely practical for daily use. However, there are also situations in which insulin syringes are needed, e.g. when the pen isn't working properly. In this case the insulin is taken directly from the pen insulin ampoule and then injected.
Moreover, there are patients who have a problem with syringes. In their case, the insulin syringes can be used to save injections. Insofar as normal insulin and long-acting insulin are suitable for this procedure, both types of insulin can be drawn up and injected together with the insulin syringe. Many patients can thus save up to 2 injections per day.
Normally, U40 insulin can't be administered with help of insulin pens. For this reason, there are specialised U40 insulin syringes for patients who are treated with U40 insulin, due to the small amount of insulin they need. This is usually the case with children.
At Praxisdienst, you can buy individually, sterile sealed insulin syringes, such as the Disposable Insulin Syringes from Dispomed Witt for U-100 and U-40 insulin with integrated needle, at affordable prices.
Tuberculin syringes are necessary to perform a Mantoux screening test in order to detect tuberculosis infections. These consumables are equipped with a very detailed graduation to precisely collect the needed amount of tuberculin. Often, the tuberculin syringes contain a displacement spike to reduce dead space as much as possible. As a particularly safe solution, we offer the BD SafetyGlide Tuberculin Syringes with 0.01 ml graduation and safety mechanism to prevent needlestick injuries.
Wound Irrigation Syringes
These single-use syringes with extra large volume are not used to inject medication, but rather for wound irrigation of all kinds. Irrigation syringes are, for example, used to clean the open wounds, e.g. after fistula surgery. Compared to regular sterile syringes, irrigation syringes provide volumes of up to 50 ml or 100 ml. As a result, they don't need to be refilled as often as standard 20 ml syringes.
Irrigation syringes are also popular for use in urology, where they are needed for rinsing catheters or bladders.
However, medical irrigation syringes not only stand out due to their large volume, but also due to their tip. While normal syringes are equipped with a Luer or Luer-Lock cone, irrigation syringes, such as the Teqler Irrigation Syringe, have a catheter connection that can be turned into a Luer tip, with help of an appropriate adapter.
Oral syringes are not approved for subcutaneous, intramuscular or intravenous medication administration. They only serve the oral administration of medication and fluids. To facilitate their identification as oral supplies, their plunger is colour-coded to stand out from regular syringes. The Exadoral Syringes from B-Braun, for example, are equipped with a purple plunger, while the plunger of the BD Enteral Syringes from Becton Dickinson is bright orange.
