Active system. Safety mechanism is activated by the clinician after the injection. BD Eclipse and BD SafetyGlide syringes use active systems.
Passive system. Needle is automatically shielded after the injection. BD AutoShield Duo Pen Needle uses a passive safety mechanism.
SmartSlip Technology, available on select small gauge needle sizes, is designed to help ensure a secure connection to luer slip syringes.
