Choose insulin syringes designed for comfortable injections, in line with the latest recommendations on insulin delivery
Just as effective as insulin syringes with longer needles, our 6-mm insulin syringes, like the BD insulin syringe with the BD Ultra-Fine? 6mm needle, reduce anxiousness, and they are less likely to cause painful injections into the muscle.1,2 Utilizing thin wall technology, they feature a thinner wall that reduces the required plunger force and that helps large insulin doses flow easily.3
They also feature a barrel with clear scale numbers and wider unit spacing that are designed to enable users to more easily draw up an accurate dose. Additionally, the larger flange is designed to allow users to more firmly hold the insulin syringe while drawing insulin. In addition to our shortest insulin syringe with a 6-mm needle, we still offer our insulin syringes with 8-mm and 12.7-mm needles.
BD offers 1-mL conventional insulin syringes—the 1-mL BD Luer-Lok? insulin syringe, 1-mL insulin syringe with the BD Luer-Lok tip and 1-mL syringe with the U-100 slip tip.
Across the diverse range of patient needs and preferences, the portfolio of BD Insulin Syringes with BD Ultra-Fine? needle offers you a choice and flexibility in choosing needle lengths and barrel capacities.
The BD SafetyGlide 6mm insulin syringe is designed to help prevent inadvertent needlestick injury during injections.
The BD Safety-Lok insulin syringe features a sliding safety sleeve that helps protect from sharps injury.
The BD U-500 insulin syringe with the BD Ultra-Fine 6mm needle supports patients taking Humulin? R U-500 insulin.
More than 80% of people preferred the BD Veo insulin syringe with the BD Ultra-Fine 6mm needle to their current insulin syringe in a 2010 study.3
