1ml Borosilicate glass syringe all

The glass syringe 1ml stands as a fundamental tool in many scientific applications. Its compact size facilitates accurate dispensing and measurements. The transparent borosilicate glass provides visibility into the liquid contents. The plunger on the syringe can also be adjusted to control fluid flow. Prefilled glass syringe 1ml plays a vital role in the medical industry.

1. Production Process

Making glass syringes 1ml is complex and requires advanced technology in a GMP-compliant workshop. We use FIOLAX@ clear neutral glass tubing from Schott for the next processing. The production process includes tube cutting, molding, cleaning, silicification, and more. The sequential steps are as outlined below:

2. Glass syringe type

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

Standard and Long skinny glass syringe 1ml

Syringes 1ml are categorized into standard and long prefilled types based on length. A slender barrel offers heightened precision, with a minute 0.02ml scale option.

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

Glass Syringe 1ml With/Without Measurements

In terms of measurements, glass syringes are available with or without markings.

Measurements are invaluable for accurately gauging small liquid quantities. However, markings may not be essential in the context of disposable prefilled syringes. A blank glass syringe can show the contents inside without being obscured by numbers. Additionally, glass syringes without ink printing contribute to a more environmentally friendly option.

Glass Syringe 1ml With Plastic plunger Rod and Metal Plunger Rod

Glass syringes with a 1ml capacity can have either plastic or metal twist plunger rods.

Usually, medical glass syringes opt for plastic plungers. Glass syringes with metal twist plungers are mainly used for packaging hemp oil. The metal plunger rod is easier to use because cannabis concentrates are thick and sticky. The 5 Points To Choose Distillate Syringe From A Plastic And Metal Plunger.

Glass Syringe 1ml with Luer lock and Luer slip cone

Looking at the sealing of prefilled syringes, two kinds of glass syringe 1ml caps exist: Luer lock and Luer slip. Luer lock syringes feature screw-on tips that help to prevent leaks. And the Luer slip syringes have a friction-fit tip that is easier to attach and remove. Both types of syringes are available in a variety of dispensing.

Glass Syringe 1ml with Childproof and self-destructed cap

When you focus on the top cap of the prefilled glass syringes, there are childproof syringes and self-destructed syringes.

A childproof cap can prevent children from accessing the contents of your syringes. It’s dangerous for cannabis extracts or some medicine liquids to children.

A self-destructing glass syringe is designed for disposal after use. Its deliberate destruction ensures patient safety. These syringes are readily accessible at most pharmacies or medical supply stores.

Glass Syringe 1ml 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 prevalent type found in the market is the round-edged glass syringe. 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. Both types of syringes operate similarly regardless of the chosen design.

Glass Syringe 1ml With/without needle

There are glass syringes 1ml with/without needles according to whether the needle is staked into a syringe.

Glass syringes can be fitted with a needle to inject liquids into the body or draw fluids from a container. They can also be used without a needle for measuring small amounts of liquid. Glass syringes with stake needles are commonly used in vaccines or biopharmaceutical products.

3. Materials

The glass syringe 1ml comprises a glass tube, a push rod, and a rubber cap. The glass barrel is made of borosilicate glass, a type of glass resistant to heat and chemicals. Good material ensures product quality and is also environmentally friendly.

4. Air-tight feature

Glass syringe 1ml features air-tight. And it can prevent air from entering the barrel. It is essential for safeguarding the syringe’s contents from potential damage. So how do you verify its airtightness? One of the easiest ways is to pull the plunger rod out when the cap is locked on. If the plunger rod recovers quickly, the syringe is sealed tight.

5. Applications

Glass Syringe 1ml for cannabis oils

The Backstop is a finger flange that can be attached to a 1ml glass syringe and helps you hold a syringe. The injection needs a hard push for viscous medicine liquid. The finger flange increases the syringe edge and makes it easy to use.

It has many different shapes and colors. The colors can be customized.

There are semi-enclosed and fully enclosed backstops. The pushrod must be unscrewed from the syringe before use in a fully closed backstop.

7. Price

They are the same price for different Luer system syringes.

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.

Generally, the order price is inversely proportional to the quantity of the product. —the more the amount, the lower the price. Our minimum order quantity is 100 pieces.

9. Sterilization

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.

10. Packaging

Nest boxes are the most common type of packaging for 1ml glass syringes. They help protect the syringe from breakage during shipping and handling. Nest boxes also provide a barrier against contamination. There are 100pcs in a box. Thus, the least order quantity is one box for wholesaling.
