Extended Information:
The Largest Supplier of Syringes in the World

Since the day in 1924 that we introduced the first syringe for insulin injection, BD has been the world's leading supplier of insulin syringes. In fact, BD is the largest manufacturer of hypodermic needles and syringes in the world. Virtually every pharmacy in the United States stocks BD insulin syringes. Most private insurance plans that cover insulin syringes and pen needles cover BD products.

Leaders in Needle Technology

As a leader in needle technology and injection comfort, BD has a history of innovation in diabetes products:

  • The first dose of insulin ever given

  • The first disposable insulin syringe

  • The first self-contained insulin syringe

  • The first 1/2cc insulin syringe

  • The first 3/10cc insulin syringe

  • The first short needle insulin syringe

Focus on Quality, Comfort, and Safety

BD is constantly seeking to improve syringes and pen needles to make them more comfortable and easy to use. Some of our many design enhancements include:

Scale Alignment: It's easy to hold a BD syringe with the flanges or wings side to side with the scale markings facing you. On some other brands, the scale is not always located in the same spot, and you may have to turn the syringe to see it.

Flat-top plunger: Attached to the plunger in a BD syringe is a black rubber stopper that's lined up with the scale markings in order to draw up a dose. The top of a BD rubber stopper is flat so that it's easy to line up with the scale marks. Some other brands don't have flat top plungers.

Latex-free: Recognizing that latex sensitivity is an issue in the healthcare environment, BD made the development of latex-free syringes a priority. BD insulin syringes and pen needles do not contain natural rubber latex.

Smooth needles: Other needles can have microscopic burrs or imperfections in the steel, which can cause injections to be painful. BD's manufacturing processes have virtually eliminated such imperfections.

Lubricant: BD needles are coated with a low-friction lubricant to create a smoother edge that makes injecting easier and less painful.

Quality Control: BD inspects each and every one of our needles during the manufacturing process to ensure the very highest quality.

Our research and engineering departments are leaders in needle technology. It's because of this commitment to product excellence and innovation that BD syringes and pen needles consistently deliver the highest quality and the greatest comfort and ease of use.

How do we measure the quality of our products? Our laboratory engineers test BD syringes alongside other brands. We measure penetration force (the force required for the needle tip to penetrate skin) and drag force (the force required for the needle to move through the skin once the tip has penetrated). A needle with lower penetration forces and drag forces hurts less than a needle with higher forces. BD needles have low penetration and drag forces because of our unique combination of excellent point geometry, lubricant, smooth steel surfaces, and strict quality control procedures.
