Luer Lock vs Luer Slip

Luer Lock

As seen in the image, a Luer Lock tip has a ‘skirt’ around it, these are useful for any application where you need to apply pressure, as you can lock items into place creating a more secure fit. For example, when using a syringe filter, you need to be able to lock it on to your syringe to prevent it from popping off when applying pressure.

Luer Slip

As seen in the image, there is no skirt round the tip, which means they are quicker to fit, you simply push your apparatus onto the end of the tip.

2 Part vs 3 Part

2 Part Syringe has a plastic plunger which is designed to better withstand corrosive chemicals as it is rubber-free.

3 Part Syringe has a black rubber addition to the end of the plunger and they are not designed for use with highly corrosive chemicals as the chemicals can cause the rubber part to corrode.

The 1ml 3 part syringes feature ‘no dead space’ meaning the rubber extends right into the tip to ensure nothing is left in the syringe.

3 part syringes are more cost effective than 2 part syringes.
