What Does Gauge Mean?

Each needle conforms to the measurement parameters set out by the Birmingham wire gauge system. Its outer diameter, inner diameter and wall thickness determines the gauge within narrow variations. Like the wire that the Birmingham system first classified back in the 1600s, sutures and catheters as well as needles are classified according to this scale.

29g gauge needles have the following measurements:

  • Outer diameter: 0.01325 in. (variation 0.00025 in.) or 0.3366 mm (variation 0.0064 mm)
  • Inner diameter: 0.00725 in. (variation 0.00075 in.) or 0.184 mm (variation 0.019 mm)
  • Wall thickness: 0.00300 in. (variation 0.00025 in.) or 0.0762 mm (variation 0.0064 mm)
  • Common lengths: 0.5 in.

The ISO6900 is a standard color coding system for needle gauges. The Luer lock connector between the needle and the syringe bears the color that identifies the gauge. The color for the 29 gauge needle is red.
