Preferred by medical professionals the world over, the single-use syringe is primarily used for administering vaccination and medication. Unlike the traditional reusable syringe which would be cleaned and reused, this type of syringe prevents the spread of blood-borne diseases. The single-use syringe operates via a simple piston-pump system. After use, it is typically collected in a "Safety Box" – a special container designed for holding contaminated injection equipment – and incinerated.
There are different types of single-use syringes, including small syringes (1-10ml) used for injecting medication, medium-sized syringes (10-12ml) for tubing with catheters, and large syringes (20-70ml) for the medical procedure of irrigation. Furthermore, single-use syringes are available with different kinds of tips such Luer Mount & luer Lock Tips.
