Disposable Syringe Manufacturer

Disposable Syringe ManufacturerWhile crude but effective syringes have been around since Roman times, the first plastic disposable syringe was invented in the 1950’s.  Prior to that time, syringes had to be custom fitted with matching caps, barrels and needles, and were often made of glass or metal tubes.  This meant that after every use, the syringe had to be thoroughly washed.  Plastic disposable syringes meant greater sterility and safety – a definite concern in today’s world of fluid-transferred diseases such as AIDS and hepatitis.

Syringe manufacturers understand that safety is a physician’s greatest concern and ultimate duty.  When buying custom syringes from a manufacturer, sterility is just one of many stringent requirements that manufacturers must obey.  Here are some other helpful points to know when working with a disposable syringes manufacturer.

What Can Be Customized?

Whether you have an idea for a new type of syringe that can help you in your practice or you want to modify an existing syringe design for a new or better application, a disposable syringe manufacturer is available to help with all the steps of the fabrication process.  From research and development to assembly, a quality manufacturer has taken every necessary step to ensure a completely flawless result from start to finish.

The first question to ask yourself when buying disposable syringes is “what do you want customized?” The injection portion of the syringe, the barrel and rubber piston, are fairly standard components of any modern day medical syringe, although the width and diameter of the barrel can be changed to suit your particular requirements.  Needles, too, are fairly streamlined and are generally made of nickel-plated stainless steel to help prevent corrosion.  The parts that make up the syringe are generally standardized, but can be adjusted to fit specific medical applications.

Materials Used To Make The Syringe

Raw materials used by a disposable syringe manufacturer must be pharmacologically inert and biodegradable.  They must also be sterile (or able to be sterilized) and non-toxic because they come in contact with the skin and human body.  Disposable syringes can be produced in three, four and five piece components depending on your requirements, and each piece can be individually fit through injection molding (for complex designs) or extrusion molding (for general applications) to create the custom tube design. Syringes can use Luer-locks, color-coded barrels, needles of varying diameter and thickness and much more.  Your disposable syringes manufacturer will likely offer you a consultation to present all the options and to detail the entire process that each syringe goes through from conceptualization to completion.

Working With A Certified Disposable Syringe Manufacturer

The most important thing you can do when choosing to work with a disposable syringes manufacturer is to check for certification.  Many manufacturers have their own set of requirements and procedures, however they should also be FDA approved and ISO 9001:2000 certified.  This certification means that these manufacturers are routinely inspected and awarded for their high commitment to quality control and customer satisfaction. Beyond just standard approval, it also shows that they handle complaints effectively, keep accurate processing records and comply with current medical requirements.
