If you are in any doubt about the appropriate use of any needle, or which needles can be used as an alternative, you can find out all you need to know on
There is an article on the anatomy of a syringe on the needles and syringes at the bottom of the needles and syringes product listing page.
All the needles on the poster are available on our website, and, in the 'product briefing' section of all the needles on our site, there is extensive guidance on the uses, risks and alternatives:
Injectable steroids are injected into muscle tissue, not into the veins. They are slowly released from the muscles into the rest of the body, and may be detectable for months after last use. Injectable steroids can be oil-based or water-based. Injectable anabolic steroids which are oil-based have longer half-life than water-based steroids. Both steroid types have much longer half-lives than oral anabolic steroids. And this is proving to be a drawback for injectables as they have high probability of being detected in drug screening since their clearance times tend to be longer than orals. Athletes resolve this problem by using injectable testosterone early in the cycle then switch to orals when approaching the end of the cycle and drug testing is imminent.
