Solo Syringes

Reducing the risk of sharing injecting equipment and transmission of blood-borne viruses.

The sharing of injecting equipment is both the biggest risk factor for blood-borne virus transmission among drug injectors, and the focus of harm reduction interventions reducing the risk of accidental sharing.1

One of the most common viruses spread amongst injecting drug users is Hepatitis C, with 90% of new infections contracted through poor injecting practice.2,3

The Solo syringes from Frontier Medical comes in five colours, making it easy to identify injecting equipment helping to reduce the risk of sharing.

The Solo fixed needle syringes are also ultra low dead space, minimising any leftover fluid inside the syringe after the plunger is fully depressed. This reduces the risk of blood-borne virus transmission should injection equipment be accidentally shared.4
