A syringe is a simple pump consisting of a plunger that fits tightly in a tube to assist pushing liquids or solids into an object either through a needle, tubing, or a nozzle. The most common use of a syringe is to administer injections into the body.

Bayer offers a large variety of syringes and disposables for computed tomography, angiography, magnetic resonance, and molecular imaging. These syringes deliver a high-quality and reliable injection solution that can save you costs, equipment, and downtime.


According to Bayer’s website,, when choosing contrast and saline syringes, here are some items you need to consider:

1. Particulates
Particulates from the manufacturing process can be directly injected into the patient if the syringe barrels are not thoroughly cleaned and inspected. Bayer inspects each syringe barrel before it is shipped to further reduce patient risk and provide an additional layer of safety.

2. Biocompatibility
If syringes are made from non-biocompatible material, then harmful substances, e.g. BPA or DEHP, can leach into the saline or contrast agent and enter the blood stream. Bayer conducts analytical chemistry studies on finished products to ensure that their syringes fully meet medical biocompatibility requirements and so do not contain any harmful substances.

3. Application of silicone
If the application is not precisely controlled, then silicone can be over- or under-applied, impacting fluid delivery performance and the well being of your patients. Bayer’s automated process precisely applies a micro-layer of silicone for consistent and accurate injection performance under clinical pressures.

4. Compatibility with injector equipment
If a non-compatible syringe is used on a MEDRAD injector, then its failure can result in over- or under-injection of contrast, and may require rescanning and re-dosing the patient. Since Bayer designs and test their syringes as part of a holistic, inter-related system, they can guarantee fluid delivery performance with a Bayer syringe.
