Pen needles

Take comfort in our needles

BD pen needles leverage advanced technology, innovative design and state-of-the-art manufacturing. Compatible with leading diabetes medication pens in Canada and tested in accordance with ISO standards for compatibility, our pen needles start as flat pieces of surgical steel that then are rolled into tubes. This design promotes injection comfort in a 4-mm size.1

BD pen needles incorporate the following methods to optimise injection comfort:

  • Penta Point Comfort technology. After cutting the cannula to length, we shape the needle tip into a patented five-bevel design, which promotes more comfortable and easier insertion compared to a three-bevel needle.
  • Microbonded lubrication. We add a layer of microbonded lubrication while manufacturing the needle to help the needle more smoothly glide into skin.
  • Electropolishing. We use a manufacturing process that polishes the needle to a smooth finish, removing the very small blemishes and rough spots that could otherwise occur during manufacturing and cause painful skin tearing.2
