BD Ultra-Fine™ 31G (0.25mm) 5/16in (8mm) 1/2cc (0.5mL) U-100 Insulin syringes are designed with large dose unit markings so patients can see numbers and scale lines clearly. BD engineers every Ultra-Fine™ Syringe to be thinner and smoother for a more comfortable and less painful injection. Needles are sculpted to create a flatter, thinner surface that helps penetrate the skin with significantly greater ease for a smoother and gentler injection. Electro-Polishing polishes away microscopic burrs giving every needle a smooth finish Micro-Bonded Lubrication process that creates more glide and less friction and Fine-Point Technology that shapes the tip of every needle as finely as possible for easier penetration using a three step process. Clinical trials support improved patient comfort, easier insertion and overall preference.

How to choose the right size insulin syringe
Choose the smallest size syringe which is big enough to hold the largest dose you take in a day. If your largest dose is close to the syringe’s maximum capacity, you might want to buy the next size up to handle any increases in your dose adjustments.
0.3mL – Ideal for doses under 30 units
0.5mL – Ideal for doses between 30 units and 50 units
1.0mL – Ideal for doses over 50 units
BD Ultra-Fine™ 31G (0.25mm) 5/16in (8mm) 1/2cc (0.5mL) U100 Insulin Syringes are for single use only. After injecting insulin please dispose of syringes properly by using a specifically designed sharps container. There is a high possibility of infection if syringes are used more than once. Sharpness and lubrication also deteriorate after first use which requires more pressure to penetrate the skin thus causing pain.
Storage and Use of Medicine
Check the drug information sheet or contact the drug manufacturer for recommended storage and use of your medicine. To avoid clogging and/or contamination of the syringe needle, DO NOT store medicine inside the syringe.
