Syringes, Plunger, Tuberculin/Allergy, Protective, Luer Slip
Definition : Tuberculin/allergy syringes that still includes a needle preattached to their Luer slip tip, that are designed to provide needle stick protection (safety). These syringes include some mechanism (manually positioned or activated) intended either to shield, blunt, or recess the needle after use or, by some other means, to lessen the possibility of contact of the healthcare provider with a sharp needle. The tapered Luer tip (i.e., Luer slip) allows the two mating tapered fittings to slip-fit into each other while yet permitting the parts to be readily separated.
