Prefilled syringes are one of the essential packagings in the pharmaceutical industry. They are used to dispense small quantities of liquid in medicine packaging solutions.

There are many types of prefilled syringes available on the market. Understanding which one will best meet your needs is crucial before buying. Here we will discuss some of the most common prefilled syringes and explain how to choose the suitable one for your needs.

Choose the prefilled syringe from the volume.

One of the first things to consider is the capacity of the prefilled syringe. Prefilled syringes come in a wide range of sizes, from 0.5ml to 10ml. The correct volume makes the dispensing more accurate. When choosing a prefilled syringe, the most crucial consideration is the volume of liquid you need to dispense.

Choose the prefilled syringe from the Luer type.

The prefilled syringes come with a Luer lock or Luer slip cap. Both are air-tight and made of borosilicate glass. The Luer lock head needs to be screwed on the prefilled syringe, while the Luer slip cap is easy to take on /off. The prefilled syringe with a Luer lock cap provides a tight and more stable connection with the needle.
