HMD – Insulin SyringesInsulin syringes are used for administering the prescribed insulin dose to diabetic patients. The subcutaneous administration of insulin is meant to imitate the naturally occurring pancreatic secretions. The insulin injection is typically put on the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks. The Insulin needle gauge indicates the thickness of the needle. The higher the gauge, the thinner the needle. The size of the syringe is chosen by the medical expert on the basis of the syringe’s insulin capacity as patient requirements typically vary from person to person. Insulin syringe prices are affordable. Being convenient, easy to handle, and patient-friendly, these syringes are widely used. They are meant for single use only. The insulin injection syringe has a uniquely designed structure comprising three parts: needle, barrel, and plunger. The needle is usually thin and short and covered with a special material such as silicone in order to allow it to slide through the skin causing minimal pain. Ordinarily made of plastic, the barrel is the chamber that holds the insulin. It is marked with calibrations designed to show the units of insulin being injected. The plunger is the narrow rod that slides up and down the length of the barrel. It serves to either draw the insulin into the barrel or release the insulin from the barrel through the needle. The rubber seal at the lower end of the plunger prevents the insulin from leaking out.

Here are general tips for storing insulin:
- Keep insulin out of direct sunlight and heat
- Store opened insulin bottles or pens at a 15°C to 30°C room temperature
- Dispose of insulin 28 days after opening it
- Unopened insulin should be kept refrigerated at a temperature between 2°C and 8°C
- Always ensure to check the expiration date before using insulin
Insulin syringes are specifically designed for injecting insulin and may not be suitable for other medications. It is best to consult your healthcare provider to choose the appropriate syringe for specific medications.
1 ml, Insulin Syringe are of two types – U 40 & U-100 Insulin Syringes. Iin U- 40 Insulin Syringes markings on the barrel are upto 40 Units, while in U-100 markings are upto 100 Units.
While in case of 1 ml Tuberculin Syringes the markings are in upto 1 ml. The above mentioned different markings are based on medication dosage prescribed to the patient.
To determine the ideal insulin syringe size, you need to consider two factors: your prescribed insulin dosage and the markings on the syringe.
A larger syringe with a higher capacity may be appropriate if your dosage is high. Conversely, a smaller syringe with finer markings may be more suitable if your dosage is low.
Insulin syringes are specifically intended for one-time use. Using a new, sterile syringe for each injection is advisable to maintain hygiene and lower the risk of infection.
There are several types of insulin syringes available in the market. The most popular types are syringes marked U-100, and U-40. U-100 syringes are designed for insulin with a concentration of 100 units per milliliter, while U-40 are used for insulin with 40 units per milliliter.
Most syringes come in measures of 30 units (30 ml), 50 units (0.5 ml), and 100 units (1 ml). These measurements refer to the barrel size of the insulin and how much insulin the syringe can hold.
Insulin syringes should be disposed of in a sharps container to avoid punctures. Do not dispose of them in regular trash or recycling bins prone to punctures to reduce the risk of accidental needlestick injuries.
Some interesting facts about insulin syringes are as follows:
- Insulin syringes are specifically designed for administering insulin to diabetes patients.
- These syringes are available in different sizes, ranging from 0.3 ml, 0.5 ml & 1 ml.
- They have an extra fine needle available in 29, 30, and 31G and a calibrated barrel to measure insulin units accurately In U-40 and U-100.
- Proper disposal of used insulin syringes is essential to prevent contamination and accidental needlestick injuries.
The needle gauge for insulin syringes typically ranges from 29 to 31G. The gauge refers to the thickness or diameter of the needle. While thicker needles may deliver insulin more quickly, thinner needles might be more comfortable.
