The polyethylene construction of these disposable syringes usually makes them rather chemically resistant. There is, however, a risk of the contents of the syringes leaching plasticizers from the syringe material. Non-disposable glass syringes may be preferred where this is a problem. Glass syringes may also be preferred where a very high degree of precision is important (. quantitative chemical analysis ), because their engineering tolerances are lower and the plungers move more smoothly. In these applications, the transfer of pathogens is usually not an issue.

Syringes are labeled based on how much liquid they can hold. Some syringes measure medication in milliliters (ml), others use cubic centimeters (cc). The good news is, 1 cc is equal to 1 ml, so you don't have to worry about confusing conversions when matching a syringe to your dosage. You just need to make sure you select a syringe that will hold the amount of medication you've been prescribed. It sounds intuitive, but if you aren't used to drawing up injectable medications it's worth pointing out. For example, if you're supposed to give yourself 3 cc of a drug, don't use a syringe that holds only 2 cc.
