Ensure insulin dose accuracy
• Make sure you never recap your insulin pen with the needle still on, as this leaves an open passageway into the medication cartridge • Attach a new needle before each injection and immediately remove after the injection • Check the flow of medication through the needle before every injection • If medication continues to drip from the needle after injections, hold the needle in the skin longer when injecting, to ensure delivery of the complete dose • Refer to the instructions of the pen manufacturer for proper injection technique with their device
Advanced technology — a difference you can feel
BD engineers every BD Ultra-Fine™ Pen Needle and Insulin Syringe to be so thin and so smooth that we can guarantee a more comfortable injection. Thanks to technology, like:
Fine point technology:
A three-step process that shapes the tip of every BD needle as finely as possible for easier penetration.
A process that polishes away microscopic burrs giving every needle a smooth finish.
A special double-lubrication process that creates more glide and less friction.
A history of innovation
Since the day in 1924 that we introduced the first insulin syringe, BD has been the world’s leading supplier of insulin delivery products. Today, BD Ultra-Fine™ Insulin Syringes and BD Ultra-Fine™ Pen Needles are used by more hospitals, doctors and people with diabetes than any other needle. BD Ultra-Fine™ Pen Needles and Insulin Syringes are covered at the preferred co-pay by virtually all managed health care plans, including medicare Part D.* Driven by our desire to help people with diabetes help themselves, we’re constantly improving upon our BD insulin syringes and BD pen needles, engineering them to be more comfortable and easier to use. In addition to offering leading injection technology products, BD provides awardwinning educational materials, start-up training and ongoing customer care support. * Co-pays and preferred status vary by plan. Check with your plan for the savings associated with a preferred brand.
Properly use and dispose of insulin syringes
After self-injection, clip off the needle with a BD Safe-ClipTM Needle Clipper, which clips and stores up to a one-year supply of needles.
Drop the needleless syringes in a BDTM Home Sharps Container, or into an empty, resealable household container such as an empty coffee can or bleach bottle. Keep container out of reach of children. When container is full, seal the lid securely and dispose of properly.*
Never handle someone else’s syringes unless a healthcare professional trains you in proper injection technique and disposal. If you inject someone else or dispose of their syringe, use caution to avoid needlesticks which can transmit serious infections. Never recap or destroy a needle that has been used by someone else. Immediately after injection, place the used syringe, still intact, in the proper container as described in 2.
Never dispose of used syringes or other medical waste in recyclable trash. Check with your local municipality or trash removal company for medical waste disposal guidelines. - For maximum comfort and safety, use syringes only once. - Never mail a syringe or pen needle unless it’s in an approved sharps mailer.

Proper needle care
To ensure you always receive a safe, comfortable injection, use a needle only once.
One brand meets your needs
If your treatment of diabetes includes an injection, you have two methods to choose from: a syringe or insulin pen and pen needle. Depending on your individual needs, one may be a better fit.
Needle reuse can:
• Dull or bend the tip, causing bleeding, bruising, or scarring • Increase the risk of the needle breaking off in the skin

The injection experts
Over the years, the insulin injection process has become easier and more comfortable, thanks to our numerous innovations in BD pen needles and BD insulin syringes.
BD insulin syringes are most widely used among people with diabetes
When selecting BD insulin syringes, first choose the syringe barrel based on your dose. Be sure to choose the smallest syringe that will hold your dose because the scale on the syringe will be easier to read.
BD pen needles fit all diabetes pens
BD Ultra-Fine™ Pen Needles provide universal fit with all diabetes pens and dosers sold in the U.S.† And to ensure BD needles meet your needs, BD offers three needle sizes.
Use this barrel size... 3/10 mL (cc)
