In a time when sustainability, recycling and having an awareness about environmental protection is at top-of-mind in the industry. It is more important now than ever before to make changes where possible. Socorex highlights 5 good reasons to start using reusable injection syringes.
The goal of vaccination is to ensure a maximal protection for each animal, thus preventing the rapid spread of potential diseases. In other words, from the first to the last animal, they all must receive the same correct doses. A quality re-usable syringe such as manufactured by Socorex provides this reliability, regardless of the number of injections. The consequence is a high protection level for the flock, thus limiting economic consequences for the farm.
Development of a re-usable syringe is a complex process, and many parameters including overall ergonomics are taken into consideration. Instrument size and weight, plunger activation, position in the hand, all these elements are carefully studied for the sake of a superior ergonomics. The new syringe ultra 1810 is even lighter and softer in the activation than most models on the market.
Where long injection series with basic syringes bring hand or shoulder tiredness, and increased risk of error, an ergonomic syringe perfectly fitting the hand enables stress-free injections with maximal concentration.
Syringe robustness results from the careful selection of all materials used, and Socorex took great consideration when selecting adequate materials for its syringes. A thick round glass barrel, a stainless-steel plunger and extremely reliable valves were chosen for the volumetry parts. Other parts such as the handle and body are made of special resin reinforced with glass fibres. By manufacturing robust syringes, Socorex wants to offer all users durable tools for reliable animal injections.
For cheap syringes thrown away after use, there is little requirement for proper maintenance. However, this has two negative aspects. It creates waste that accumulates which in turn has a detrimental effect on nature. Always buying new syringes is also less cost-efficient in the long run.
Socorex offers an alternative with instruments that can be easily disassembled and cleaned. All parts are available separately and can be replaced. The easy maintenance helps keep the syringe ready for use over a long period of time.
Together with its reliable syringe lines, Socorex offers a range of accessories providing enhanced flexibility for the users. Single needle for the Twin syringe, vial holder conversion set, shot counter and rigid extension tubing. Users can choose according to their specific application needs.
Socorex’s approach has always been to manufacture quality injection instruments. The same consideration also applies to the Socorex needles. Made of robust stainless steel with an extremely sharp bevel tip, they allow vaccinating between 5 and 10x more birds than with ordinary needles. Comparing the cost / use ratio it is then interesting use this to make the right decision.
It is often said reusable syringes are expensive. This may be true when comparing purchase prices. However, considering their durability, the limited need of new purchase, the reliability for efficient animal protection, the higher cost at the beginning appears to be a good investment for instruments that will be used for years. This is now more important than ever when the focus is on re-using, recycling, sustainability, and environmental protection. Many customers have trusted Socorex for the past 60 years, they are winners with their robust and reliable instruments ready to serve for many years to come.
