The syringe is an invention without which it is impossible to imagine the modern medicine.

However, its first models were far from perfect.
Although intravenous injections were known as early as 1670, but the devices with which they were made were quite primitive.

The world is indebted to the great French scientist Blaise Pascal and his interest in fluid dynamics, hydrostatics, and atmospheric pressure for the invention of the syringe. In 1647 Pascal made two important inventions – a hydraulic press and the syringe. But at that time the syringe did not find a wide application. This happened only in 1843 in Great Britain. Alexander F. Wood, a Scottish physician, who had studied the possibility of expanding the use of morphine for anesthesia, first used a syringe that was a little different from the one invented by Pascal, for introducing morphine into the human body.

Practically at the same time with Blaise Pascal a French physician Charle-Gabrial Pravaz suggested a supposition about the possibility of introducing medicinal means into the organism with the help of compressed air. Continuing his research, Wood and Pravaz in 1853 invented a syringe and a needle for intravenous and intramuscular injections. In the same year Wood first introduced the morphine solution into the area of nerve trunks during a fit of neuralgic pain and received a positive result.

The universal syringe of Pravaz was close to the modern one and was used in medical practice almost to the middle of the 20th century. The Pravaz syringe consisted of a glass cylinder with a capacity of 1 ml and with a rim of hard rubber and a metal rod with a leather piston.

In the late fifties of the 19th century, Luer in Paris, described the screw connection of the syringe and the needle, and then replaced it with a cone-shaped canule at the end of the syringe. This connection between the syringe and the needle is used nowadays. Luer also eliminated the screw stroke of the piston and added a graduation on the barrel. The Luer syringe consists entirely of glass and metal. Syringes made of glass and metal are designed for repeated use, they undergo sterilization.

Reusable syringes were often the cause of the spread of infections and the injections themselves were very painful.

In 1956 Colin Murdoch, a pharmacist from Timaru, New Zealand patented a plastic disposable syringe. His invention came to replace the glass syringe and the risk of transmission of infections decreased considerably. But that design can hardly be called ideal because the syringe invented by Murdoch consisted of only two components – a barrel and piston.

It’s common knowledge that all the two-component disposable syringes have common problems that are impossible tio eliminate:

  • tightness of the piston stroke (It’s impossible to make an injection with a two-component syringe ensuring an precise proportioning of the preparation, especially if it is an oil-based solution);
  • uneven, poorly controlled piston stroke throughout the injection;
  • typical click at the end of injection;
  • the possibility of penetration of microparticles of polypropylene into the organism.

All of these constructive problems can only be solved by adding a third component – the seal piston cup – like with syringes of “UIS PHARM” company.

All the products offered by “UIS PHARM” company embody the advanced injection technology.

The syringes of our company are designed for subcutaneous, intramuscular and intravenous substances. The injection syringe manufactured by “UIS PHARM” company consists of a cylinder, a piston, a piston and a sealing piston cup and is equipped with a high- quality needle.

The supersharp laser treated needles have a unique lance-type sharpening which does not cut, but draws tissues apart, making the injection practically painless. It minimizes the efforts during an injection, prevents the injury of tissues and simplifies the injection.
The unique silicone coating of the interior and exterior walls of the needle makes them perfectly smooth. Therefore the blood cells are not destroyed when the needle walls come into contact with them, and the coagulation factors are not formed, which prevents the formation of blood clots.

The double piston cup is cone-shaped, which ensures the highest air-tightness and smoothness of the piston stroke, eliminates the “dead zone” with the remnants of the injection fluid between the front wall of the syringe and the piston cup. All this improves the accuracy of proportioning, which is extremely important for the injection of small doses of expensive preparations.

“UIS PHARM” company uses absolutely inert and flexible medical purpose plastic material for manufacturing the syringe gaskets instead of latex, which excludes the possibility of allergen influence on the patient’s organism. Besides, this unique material allows the piston to glide more smoothly.

The ideal transparence of the syringe case helps to notice the air bubbles and the turbidity of injection fluid immediately. The clear graduation of the syringe case allows to precisely control the dose. There are broad grips on the syringe case and piston, which makes syringes particularly steady in hands. The reliable end retainer guarantees locking the piston during intake of liquid.
