Help: Syringes by Type


Back to Help


Manufacturers use similar, but often different, codes to identify syringe types. Codes are usually defined by the plunger top and syringe connection. Some of the types below have images to help you understand the codes and identify your syringe.

When space is limited, codes are often combined; for example "BRG" means "Bevel-Tip Removable Needle with Guided Plunger" because each letter stands for a different part of the syringe.

**This list is being updated continuously. If you have a question about a syringe type that is or is not listed, let us know via the Contact Us page and we'll help you out.
