Sterimatic is a UK-invented and patented system that prevents needle-stick injuries during vaccination jobs and reduces injection-site infections and abscesses. The system also reduces the potential of disease transmission from one animal to another. The Sterimatic system comprises a retractable sleeve which is fitted over the vaccinator needle and a disinfectant-impregnated quick-change Stericap which is placed on the end of the sleeve. The sleeve covers the needle completely, preventing accidental needle-stick injuries to the user. Each time the vaccinator is used, the Sterimatic sleeve slides back drawing the Stericap over the needle. In this way, the needle is sanitised each time it is used. A new Stericap should be fitted after 100 injections. Sterimatic will fit all popular models of vaccinator. The Sterimatic Kit comprises one sleeve assembly plus five stericaps and five needles. The needles are 1' x 18g (although in the Sterimatic the needle is effectively ��'). The Stericaps 5-pack comprises five disinfectant caps plus five needles.

The Genia Plexiglass is our best quality volume syringe, made in France. This syringe features metal top and bottom caps making it most robust for heavy-duty use. This is especially so for the bottom cap which supports the nozzle. The plunger shaft and washer is also made of metal, so will not distort under any sterilisation. This is a life-time tool. Brass nozzle is 19cm long. A spare seal is included.
TopDoc are Shoof's own-brand disposable syringes. Indelible markings. Barrels are siliconised to make them smooth to use. Tips are strong to reduce breakage. All are slightly bigger volume than nominated (eg: 10ml will open to 12ml). This means plunger is still stable at maximum opening. All luer-slip.
