Total Dose Needles

Total Dose needles are a low dead space needle, with a plastic spike that fits down inside the tip of the syringe to reduce the dead space by around 75% - reducing the need to flush, blood quantity if shared, and viral survival.

Total dose needles are available in the 5 most commonly used sizes - orange (16 and 25mm), blue (25mm and 30mm), and green (40mm).

Please note that Total Dose needles fit best on the Nevershare 2ml syringe, and do NOT fit on

Terumo 1ml, 2.5, or 5ml syringes
The BD 2ml 'Emerald' syringe
Frontier (and some other) 2ml, 5ml, and 10ml syringes or
Syringes with a spike that goes into the tip of the syringe
