What Is a Tuberculin Syringe?

A tuberculin syringe is one that contains tuberculin and is used for tuberculin skin testing. Tuberculin, also known as purified protein derivative, is a mixture of proteins that can be used to help detect and diagnose tuberculosis (TB).

Tuberculin syringes are used for tuberculin skin testing, otherwise known as Mantoux testing or tuberculin sensitivity testing. This process involves injecting a small amount (0.1ml) of tuberculin intradermally into the layers of skin on the arm. The patient's reaction is then monitored for the following few days to look for signs of tuberculosis.

Mantoux tests are one of the most common forms of TB testing used around the world, and tuberculin syringes are a key part of this testing process, so they're some of the most commonly-used syringes for diagnostic purposes. They’re vital for detecting and diagnosing TB in locations where the disease is still rife, as well as in countries where it is relatively rare.

How Does a Tuberculin Syringe Work?

The way in which tuberculin syringes work is relatively simple. First, an injection site will be selected. This is usually in the patient's arm, and either the left or right arm may be chosen, depending on the patient's preferred hand. The tuberculin syringe will then be inserted into the layers of dermis on the forearm, halfway between the elbow and the rest, with the needle's bevel facing up. A small amount of tuberculin is then injected into the skin and the injection site will need to be monitored for a few days to observe the level of inflammation and reaction.

Tuberculin Syringe Sizes 

Tuberculin syringes are all relatively similar in size, but there are some slight variations. It's possible to find 1/2ml tuberculin syringes, for example, as well as 1ml tuberculin syringes.

Tuberculin Syringe Types

Tuberculin syringes are all usually quite similar in terms of their style and design, but they can be divided into specific types. There are safety tuberculin syringes, for example, which feature needles that automatically or manually retract into the syringe after the injection in order to reduce the risk of needlestick injuries.

Tuberculin Syringe Uses

The main use of tuberculin syringes is for Mantoux tests or TB skin tests. These tests are carried out to determine whether or not a patient may have tuberculosis. Tuberculosis testing is carried out on a daily basis in many countries around the world, as tuberculosis is still a very prevalent infectious disease with millions of active cases diagnosed annually, especially across Asia and Africa.

Covidien, Cadence Science, Nipro, and Air-Tite Products are among the top suppliers of tuberculin syringes.
