Medical Needles - Specifications and Dimensions

11/20/2008 2:18 AM

Can anybody point me to links to find the specifications and dimensions of medical needles, for human and veterinary injection

I have had a good hunt but suppliers are not very specific,I would have thought there are some standards somewhere.

Garth

Hi garth,

Here is one range of needle sizes of one supplier, the usual metric, imperial and gauge options apply to stainless steel stock

Glad to see there are a number of engineers from NZ on CR4. My daughter's on a flight to Auckland as I type this. She and her family are moving there and I am anxious to visit and see your lovely country.

You can be sure they will enjoy and be safe in this part of the world.

You may find this an enjoyable site for current NZ weather but especially some of the contributor photos of the landscape. www.metvuw.co.nz
