Tips on syringes care for best longevity

syringe care syringe bath


Ultrasonic Bath

  • Do not completely immerse in organic solvent, as this may attack some of the material
  • Wipe the plunger
  • Use non-fibre shedding cloth
  • Hold it by the handle


  • Use acetone or methanol
  • Leave no fluid in the needle after flushing
  • Dry with vacuum using a higher volume syringe or a vacuum pump
  • Use cleaning wire supplied for all ILS syringes with a small inner diameter (wide selection is also available)
  • N-series require regular flushing to prevent plunger from getting stuck
  • Upgraded A-series is resistant to getting stuck thanks to a top end seal and better plunger movement, ensuring long lifetime
  • Insert plunger ONLY when completely dry
  • Do not move the plunger unnecessarily while dry
  • Store the plunger and glass barrel separately and connect only when required for use
