Pre-Filled Syringes

When we think of syringes, we think of injections. Long, sharp needles that doctors and nurses poke into our arms and elsewhere. This may be the most common application but it is far from the only one. Syringes allow very precise control of dosing by markings on the barrel. They also allow precise control of the dispensing rate. This is important both when injecting into a person to prevent pain and laying down a bead of adhesive. Needles or other dispensing tips may be used. Common non pharmaceutical applications include glue dispensers, two part epoxy dispensers, caulking and grease dispensers. This paper will refer to all as syringes for simplicity.
