UltiCare syringes come in various body and needle sizes to fit every diabetic's particular needs and dosages. The body size relates to the capacity of the syringe, and the needle size relates to the gauge of the needle. Order online...
Our syringes come in three body sizes, 1cc, 0.5cc, and 0.3cc. This pertains to the overall capacity of the syringe. The gradation markings for U-100 insulin of each size are:
Size Maximum Dosage Scale Increments
1cc 100 units 2 units
.5cc 50 units 1 unit
.3cc 30 units 1 unit
Generally speaking, you should size your syringe to your maximum injection dosage. For example, if you are taking 20 units per shot, you could use either a 0.5cc/50 unit syringe or a 0.3cc/30 unit syringe. If you are taking 60 units, use a 1cc/100 unit syringe. Since the markings are wider apart the smaller the syringe size, it is generally easier to read a 35 unit dosage on a 0.5cc/50 unit syringe than on a 1cc/100 unit syringe. It is easier to read a 15 unit dosage on a 0.3cc/30 unit syringe than on a 0.5cc/50 unit syringe. There is nothing wrong with doing a 15 unit dosage on a 1cc/100 unit syringe, but remember, being precise with your dosage leads to better diabetes management. UltiCare needles are available with 28 gauge, 29 gauge, 30 guage, and 31 gauge sizes. This number represents the U.S. standard sizing for stainless steel hypodermic tubing.
