We have outlined in previous articles the importance of testing fluids using the correct sized 10 ml syringe – one with a barrel length of 61.5 mm.  This is essential in order to be able to accurately test your drink. The best way to ensure this is to check the barrel length is 61.5 mm and that it is either Luer lock or slip tip.  When you confirm the correct syringe, we suggest you note the code number on the syringe package for future ordering.  Note that syringe codes can differ by country.


  • North America: BD 303134 – 10ml slip tip, BD 302995 – 10 ml luer lock tip;
  • Australia BD 302143 – 10 ml slip tip
