BD Ultra-Fine™ III Short Pen Needle 31G 5/16in Fits all pens and dosers in the USA.
The BD Ultra-Fine™ III Short Pen Needle is 31 gauge, 8 mm (5/16"). No pen needle is thinner. It is BD's best-selling pen needle. The majority of people who take insulin - 82% - get effective results with this needle, but some people, many of whom are overweight, do not.* You should consult with a health care professional before switching to a shorter pen needle.
Guaranteed injection comfort or your money back.
For use with all Type A insulin pens including:
Today's insulin needle is thinner and more delicate for greater comfort, so needle reuse can damage the tip and cause injury. To ensure maximum safety and comfort, you should never use a syringe or pen needle more than once.
BD Ultra-Fine™ Pen Needles fit all diabetes pens and dosers sold in the U.S., including OptiClik® for Lantus® and Apidra®, all Eli Lilly and Novo Nordisk insulin pens, and the pen for Exenatide.

To ensure an accurate dose when injecting with an insulin pen:
Check the flow of insulin through the needle after loading a cartridge and before every injection.
Attach a new needle before each injection and immediately remove and destroy after the injection. Never carry a pen with the needle attached, as this leaves an open passageway into the insulin cartridge.
If insulin continues to drip from the needle after injections, hold the needle in the skin longer when injecting, to ensure delivery of the complete dose.
Before changing to a shorter needle, consult with your health care professional.
