Here below is talking about everything about 1ml glass syringes, including the production process, types, materials, features, applications, etc.
1ml Borosilicate glass syringe all

The 1ml glass syringe is a simple essential tool for many scientific applications. Its small size allows for precise dispensing and measurements. And the clear borosilicate glass makes it easy to see the liquid inside. The plunger on the syringe can also be adjusted to control fluid flow. 1ml prefilled glass syringe plays a vital role in the medical industry.

1. Production Process

The production process of 1ml glass syringes is complicated, and it requires high technology and GMP workshop. We use neutral glass tubing of FIOLAX@ clear from Schott for further processing. The production process mainly includes tube cutting, molding, cleaning, silicification, etc. As follows:

2. Glass syringe type

There are many different types of 1ml glass syringes classified by the length, measurements, materials of plunger rods, Luer pattern, top cap, glass barrel bottom, and needle attachment.

1ml Standard glass syringe and 1ml Long skinny syringe

From the length of 1ml syringes, there are 1ml standard and 1ml long prefilled syringes. A slender long barrel can have higher precision. The most miniature 0.02ml scale is available.

1ml standard glass syringe is one of the most popular distillate packaging. And the 1ml long glass syringes are excellent hyaluronic acid containers.

1ml Glass Syringe With/Without Measurements

From the point of view of measurements, there are glass syringes with/without measurements.

Measurements are very useful for precisely measuring small amounts of liquid. But when used as a disposable prefilled syringe, markings are not necessary. A blank glass syringe can show the contents inside without being obscured by numbers. Also, glass syringes without ink printing are more environmentally friendly.

1ml Glass Syringe with Round bottom and trimmed-end bottom

From the bottom shape of 1ml glass syringe barrels, the syringes can be classified as round bottom and trimmed-end bottom syringes.

The most common 1ml glass syringes are the round-edged ones on the market. After further cutting based on the round syringes, the glass syringe with a trimmed edge comes out. Its advantage is that it is not easy to roll off when placed at a table. Whether choosing one of the syringes, it’s the same in use.

The price of a 1ml skinny glass syringe is higher than a 1ml short glass syringe. Since the process of a small diameter borosilicate glass is complicated, the cost is high.

A 1ml metal plunger rod is more expensive than a plastic one because metal costs more than plastic.

The price of a 1ml glass syringe with gold plunger is slightly higher than that of the silver one. The silver plunger rod is made of stainless steel. And the gold pushrod needs to be electroplated with a gold color based on a silver plunger.

We offer both EO gas and irradiation sterilization methods for borosilicate glass syringes.

EO gas sterilization is a process that uses ethylene oxide gas to kill microorganisms. This method is effective against a wide range of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Irradiation sterilization uses high-energy radiation to kill microorganisms.

Irradiation sterilization is a process that uses ionizing radiation to destroy microorganisms, bacteria, and viruses. The radiation can come from gamma rays, x-rays, or electron beams.

All these 2 methods can keep glass syringes clean and safe.
