What are insulin pen needles?
A pen needle is a needle directly attached to an insulin pen by either screw-on or click-on mechanism. This type of device is used with insulin pens which is an alternative way to deliver insulin compared to insulin syringes. Although many options are universal, pen needles need to be specific to your insulin pen's brand and design. The needles are sold separately from the pens. Consult your diabetes health care provider for help choosing the right pen needle.
What are the common sizes of pen needles?
Needle Length - Pen needles come in various lengths. The length is how long the needle is. This type of needle is currently available in the following lengths: 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm. The most common pen needle lengths used are between 4mm and 8mm.
Gauges - The gauge or needle thickness is from 29-33 gauge. The lower the size of the gauge, the thicker the needle.

They feature advanced technology and added lubrication for premium comfort during application.
