Product Description

SecureGardฎ Retractable Safety Syringe


The SecureGardฎ Retractable Safety Syringe is single-use, sterile, disposable hypodermic syringe with needle alongside or attached which is intended for dispensing/administering fluids in medical practice.

The key safety feature, where the clinician retracts the hypodermic needle by manually locking the plunger onto the needle hub, withdrawing the plunger, pulling the needle into the barrel and breaking the plunger, virtually eliminates the accidental clinical reuse of the syringe and accidental needle stick injuries.


The syringe is presently manufactured in 1.0, 2.5, 3.0 and 5ml capacities. The table below illustrates the availability of syringe/needle combinations ‘off the shelf’.
