Description

Still sealed in its packaging, a British made insulin syringe with the needle housed in a separate container. The body of the syringe is transparent with large numbers and markings to aid the user to see the amount of insulin in the device. The plunger is used to draw up the medicine into the tube as well as push it into the patient. It is likely this was for home use as well as in hospital. Dimensions are for the device in its packaging.
