Description

Transcodent Painless Steel Injection Needles are single-use, sterile needles for the delivery of anesthetic. Each needle has a three-edge lancet grinding and a siliconized cannula for smooth entry and patient comfort. Each hub has a bevel marking and is threaded to ensure easy and safe handling. The needles are to be used with imperial thread injection syringes. To use, bend the cap to  break the heat seal, and remove the back-cap. Screw the needle on an anesthetic syringe and pull off the front cap. Note the bevel mark for optimal needle point location during injection. Transcodent Painless Steel Injection Needles are available in 25 G short/long, 27 G short/long, and 30 G short/x-short. Twenty-six clinical consultants used these injection needles in over 900 procedures. This product received a 95% clinical rating.
