The BD Ultra-Fine™ Mini Pen Needle is 31 gauge, 5mm (3/16"). More patients prefer the 5mm needle length. Shorter needles are more comfortable and reduce the risk of intramuscular injections. The Mini is ideal for patients new to injection therapy, children and patients with needle anxiety, and no lifted skin fold is required.
Paper tab and inner shield are color-coded purple for easy size/gauge recognition.
NOTE: Today's insulin needle is thinner and more delicate for greater comfort, so needle reuse can damage the tip and cause injury. To ensure maximum safety and comfort, you should never use a syringe or pen needle more than once. For more details, see our web page on the risks of needle reuse.
