Syringe and Needle Market Overview


A syringe is categorized as a pump that consists of a plunger. It was later evolved to add pistons instead of plungers that are fitted onto the barrel, that is, a cylindrical tube. The plungers are destined to be pushed and pulled within the tube; that is the sole mechanism of how the syringe takes in or expels the gas or liquid. The discharge or intake takes place through the discharge of rice that is situated on the front end of the syringe or tube. They are mostly used in diverse medical applications throughout the globe. The hypodermic needle and syringe are sterile devices that are used majorly for injecting solutions or withdrawing some secretions to/from the body. 


Today, the syringes are made up of either plastic cylinders or calibrated glass. And, the plunger is attached to the top end, whereas a needle is attached to the bottom end of the tip. Usually, a metal tube with a pointed tip, called a needle, is attached to syringes for carrying out the required purpose. The main purpose of syringes and needles is to administer drugs or injecting of a small number of drugs into a human body. It is mostly recommended when the patient is not able to consume the drug by mouth. Apart from that, the syringe and needle are also preferable for drawing or collecting samples of different blood fluids for the purpose of lab tests and diagnosis. The tissue fluids from joints or blood from the veins are extracted for laboratory tests.
