More on Syringes

May 26, 2010

I noticed that McMaster-Carr sells syringes and needles in the United States. They are currently  available in type 304 stainless steel. Gauge 25, .020″ O.D. fits a 1/64″ blade quite well, $13.97 for 50.  The 21 Gauge, .032″  O.D. fits the thicker 1/32″ blade, also $13.97 for 50.  Both are an easy to handle 1/2″ length.

As Victoria previously mentioned, there are advantage to flexible plastic needles as well.  The thinnest PTFE needle they sell is 22 Gauge, .040″ O.D., $19.43 for 10. They also have a Polypropylene needles, 25 Gauge with a .029″ O.D. for $2.23 each.

WARNING: Their catalog contains over 480,000 products and is highly addictive.
