Safety Syringe Design Comparison

There are currently four general designs of safety syringes.


The Q STAT Safety Syringe has significant design features that make it the most effective and safe spring retractable syringe.

The Q STAT Safety Syringe works in the same way as a traditional syringe. The luer lock allows for easy change of needles and selection of the appropriate needle for each procedure. The safety technology is passive. It is the only user-controlled automatic retraction syringe available today.


  • Require two hands to operate.
  • Require a second hand moving closer to the needle to activate.
  • Harder to read the scales because of the sheath.
  • Many reported problems of being able to reliably engage the safety mechanisms.
  • Must retract from the injection site, exposing the needle before actuation.
  • Take up more room in expensive sharps containers.
  • Trials of one design actually increased needlesticks at Kaiser Permanente.
  • Some require a second operation in order to lock it in place. The same old problem with a new twist.


  • Require a grip change.
  • Safety feature actuation requires a thumb or finger in closer proximity to the needle.
  • Must retract from the injection site, exposing the needle before actuation.
  • Kaiser’s use of one model failed to reduce needle sticks during one year of wide-spread use.


  • Necessitate reaching next to the needle to move the cover out of the way in order to give an injection.
  • Require a grip change to operate a safety feature.
  • Puts at least one finger in close proximity to the needle after the injection.
  • Must retract from the injection site, exposing the needle before actuation.
  • Cumbersome to use.
  • Flipping motion as the needle snaps into the cover can cause blood splatter.
