Safety needles

BD offers active and passive needle-based safety systems to meet clinician preferences. In our needle-based safety devices, the safety mechanism is built into the needle. The needle can be manually attached to a conventional syringe or a commercially prepared pre-filled syringe.

Active system

In an active system, clinicians activate the safety mechanism after the injection. BD Eclipse™ syringes and BD SafetyGlide™ syringes use active systems.

Passive system

In a passive system, the syringe automatically shields the needle after the injection. The BD AutoShield Duo™ pen needle uses a passive safety mechanism.
