“USED” SYRINGES / Medical safety


This packaging of syringes is to easily distinguish whether the syringes are used so as to avoid the illegally repeated use of syringes. The middle part of the adhesive sticker sticks on the syringe tube. When people tear the packaging along the outstretched sticker, yellow lines peel off but red “used” and red lines stay with the syringes. We can distinguish the used syringe from the misplace stickers on the packaging.
