Thread: re-use needles?
01-06-2002, 11:46 PM #1
It's not the question you thought it was!
Is there any problem re-using a drawing needle?
If I draw my oils with an 18g then switch to whatever, can't you place the 18g in a sterile solution till the next draw?I'm not talking about 5 min, but a day or two?
I know ther cheap, but I'm wandering about convenience.

you could probably get away with that bro, but why chance it? pins cost only a few pennys a peice and they arent illegal. so but 1000 of them.

Go for a clean needle everytime its safer and like BK said they are very cheap!

when you open the package the needle came in, it is exposed to air(bacteria).....then you push it through a rubber stopper that holds some bacteria.....the oil you draw up will remain on the inside of the needle and create a breeding ground for everything.....
nothing sterile about any of that......
always use a new needle.......
BE SAFE !!!!!!

I have never re-used before, but I usually stick myself with the same needle I draw with, 22g

You wanna be cheap? Do this, take an 18g, draw up what you need to inject w/into the syringe, unscrew the syringe attach it to the pin you are going to use to inject, put back in the wraper it came in. Repeat until all your syringes are pre loaded (the 18g will never have to leave the bottle untill you are finished).
