FAQ

 Frequently Answer & Question

Q: What is the difference between the 1 cc, the 1/2 cc, and the 3/10 cc insulin sizes?

A: The 3/10 cc insulin syringes are to be used for doses of 30 units or less; the 1/2 cc insulin syringes are for 50 units or less; the 1 cc insulin syringes are for 100 units or less. 

Q: In the 12.7mm length, what is the difference between 28 gauge and 30 gauge needles?

 
A: The 30 gauge needle is thinner. The larger the gauge number, the thinner the needle.
 
 Difference between 1 ml Insulin and Tuberculin Syringe?
1ml, Insulin syringes are of two types- U-40 And U-100 Insulin Syringes. In U-40 the Syringes markings on the barrel are 10, 20, 30, 40 Units, while in U-100 markings are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 & 100 Units. While in case of 1ml Tuberculin Syringe the marking are in 0.1ml, 0.2ml,0.3ml , 0.4ml , 0.5ml , 0.6ml , 0.7ml, 0.8ml , 0.9ml & 1ml. The above mentioned different markings are based on medication dosage prescribed to the patient.

Q: Can the syringes be reused?
A: Varid Insulin Syringes are designed for single use only, and are clearly labeled as such. Today's insulin needle is thinner and more delicate for greater comfort, so needle reuse can damage the tip and cause injury. Use only once. 

Q: How do I properly dispose of syringes?
A: In many cases, local communities establish disposal rules. So first, check with your town or trash removal company about safe disposal of used syringes and lancets. A good place to call may be your local health department. The following are some guidelines that may be helpful:

  • Never throw loose syringes or lancets into the trash. If you are disposing your own syringe, clip the needle with a needle-clipping device . 
  • Never handle someone else's syringe unless a healthcare professional trains you in proper injection technique and disposal. If you inject someone else or dispose of their syringe, use extreme caution to avoid needlesticks which can transmit serious, even grave infections.
  • Never recap or destroy a needle that has been used by someone else. Immediately after the injection, place the used syringe, still intact, in a safe container as described below. 
    Put the used syringe or lancet into a Container or a hard plastic or metal container with a screw-on tightly secured lid, such as an empty coffee can or a bleach bottle. Keep this container away from children. When the container is full, seal the lid securely and dispose of properly. 
  • Never dispose of used syringes or other medical waste in recyclable trash. Syringes and lancets are not recyclable. 

Q: Can the syringes be prefilled?

A: We do not recommend that any of our syringes be prefilled more than a few minutes in advance of the injection. There are no conclusive studies to determine the safety or risks associated with this practice. 


Q: Do the syringes have an expiration date?

A: There is no expiration date for insulin syringes. Syringes should be stored in a temperate, dry area. 

Q: How are the syringes sterilized?

A: The sterilization process used is cobalt irradiation. The sterilization is the last process before shipping to the Distribution Centers. The syringes are already packed in their outer cartons. 
 
What is the material used for making Gasket?


Gasket is made of rubber which has been validated as per ISO:7886/IS:10258 standard for compatibility for wide range of solvents used in medication.
 
How is Ribbon packaging better than blister packing?
The plastic lamination of Ribbon packaging has higher puncture & tear resistance than the paper lidding of a blister pack - the sterility assurance factor is therefore relatively superior. Additionally the package does not get dusty/dirty/wet in poor handling & transportation prevalent in underdeveloped/developing nations.
 
 
What is the normal component of I.V Administration Set?






Normal I.V Administration Set is consist of chamber with spike, with Air-Vented or w/o Air-Vented, Adjuster, with stopper or w/o stopper, "Y" Injection Site, and Needle, with the necessary Tube. Component of I.V Administration Set can be adjusted according to different application or operating habit, so customer's design or special arrangement is accepted.
 
What is the difference between Luer Lock and Luer Slip?
Luer Slip Syringes are syringes which permit needle fixation on to push fit slip tip attachment, while Luer Lock Syringes are Syringes which permit more secure fixation with Screw on Locking Collar on a Luer Tip. Luer Tip indicates a 6% Taper and is the universally accepted standard for fitment of connectors medical application for ensuring minimal chances of leakages.
What is the difference between Latex and Latex free?
Natural rubber latex (NRL) is a milky fluid obtained from the Hevea brasiliensis tree, which is widely grown in South East Asia, and other countries. NRL is an integral part of thousands of everyday consumer and healthcare items. As with many other natural products, natural rubber latex contains proteins to which some individuals may develop an allergy. Around 1-6% of the general population is thought to be potentially sensitized to NRL although not all sensitized individuals develop symptoms. However, the main reason to use NRL is because NRL is a widely-used and cost-effective material, which for the majority of the population is not a clinical risk.
Our Latex free gasket is made by medical grade Latex free rubber, which can avoid the NaturalRubber Latex Allergy caused by using Latex Gasket
What does single-use mean?
A single-use parenteral medication should be administered to one patient only. Single-use IV solutions should be administered to one patient only, during one treatment. Syringes and needles should be used for a single patient only for a single procedure.
 
When should a multi-dose medication vial be discarded?
Medication vials should be discarded upon expiration or any time there are concerns regarding the sterility of the medication.
Is it acceptable to use the same syringe to give IM or subcutaneous (SC) injections to more than one patient if I change the needle between patients?
NO. Once they are used, the syringe and needle are both contaminated and must be discarded. Use a new sterile syringe and needle for each patient.
Is it acceptable to use the same syringe to give an IM or IV injection to more than one patient if I change the needle between patients and I don't draw back before injecting?
NO. A small amount of blood can flow into the needle and syringe even when only positive pressure is applied outward. The syringe and needle are both contaminated and must be discarded.
Q. What is the difference between 3pc and 2pc syringe ?
Three-piece syringe has 3 components:
a. Barrel
b. Plunger
c. Gasket(Rubber bung)

Two-piece syringe has only 2 components:
a. Barrel
b. Plunger
Q. Which is better Three- piece or Two-piece syringe ?
Both syringes are used for same purpose. However, many users find 3pc syringe operationally more convenient; also large syringe sizes are not available in 2pc syringes.
Q. What is the meaning of gauge size in needles ?
The gauge size denotes thickness of the needle i.e. Lower the number, Thicker the needle.
16G will be thicker than 24G.
 
 
Q. What precautions are to be taken for using the syringe ?
 
· Ensure packing is intact so the syringe is sterile.
· Place the syringe in a clean tray after opening.
· Clean the injection site.
· Render the syringe unusable after the injection by cutting barrel tip and blunting the needle if    you do not have any other means of disposal
 
What is safety syringe?
Safety syringe is a kind of syringe with Needle retraction and reuse prevention functions.
Needle retraction means the syringe needle can be pull back into the syringe barrel after the injection.
Reuse prevention means the entire syringe cannot be reused after the injection, which also means the syringe only be able to draw back at once time after use.
 
What is Auto-Disable syringe?
Auto-Disable syringe is a kind of syringe with reuse prevention function. Auto Disable Syringe are Syringe that cannot be reused. They incorporate a mechanism to break or lock the plunger when the injection is given to make the syringe inoperable for being used for second time.
 
What is injection safety?
Injection safety, or safe injection practices, is a set of measures taken to perform injections in an optimally safe manner for patients, healthcare personnel, and others. A safe injection does not harm the recipient, does not expose the provider to any avoidable risks and does not result in waste that is dangerous for the community. Injection safety includes practices intended to prevent transmission of infectious diseases between one
What is Safety Syringe for?
1. To reduce the risk of healthcare worker needle stick injuries
2. To prevent syringe being reused.
