Needle length (mm)

Insulin needles come in different lengths. BD Original Needles are 12.7 mm (1/2") long, and BD Short Needles are 8 mm (5/16") long. The BD Nano Needle 4mm (3/16") and BD Mini Needle 5mm (5/32") are available only in pen needles. For a comfortable injection experience, shorter needle lengths are recommended and preferred.

Needle gauge (G)

The higher the gauge, the thinner the needle. For example, 32G is thinner than a 31G needle.Insulin needles are available in many gauges (G), or thicknesses. The higher the gauge, the thinner the needle. For example, a 32 G needle is actually thinner and more comfortable than a 29 G needle.

Thin Wall

Thin Wall: As shown in the diagram, the thin wall needle has a narrower steel wall, allowing a greater volume of fluid to pass through it. The flow rate is typically equivalent to that of a needle one gauge larger. This is especially important with very thin needles.

Permanently Attached Needle

Most commonly found in insulin and 'tuberculin' syringes. Permanently attached needles, also known as integral needles, reduce the amount of medication waste and allow accurate mixing of different medications into one syringe.
