Hypodermic Needles

Hypodermic needles are long thin hollow tubes with a hole in a pointed end. Often, they are used together with a syringe to inject liquid material beneath the skin, such as with insulin syringes and vaccination shots. They can also be used to extract liquid from the body, such as during blood tests.

Hypodermic needle sizes are specified according to a gauge, which can be compared to other gauges used by wires, drills and meshes.
