BD Micro-Fine Pen Needles

BD Ultra-Fine™ pen needles

Get smoother, more gentle injections

BD Ultra-Fine™ and BD Ultra-Fine Nano™ pen needles utilize advanced technologies to optimize the comfort of insulin injections. Available in different sizes, they enable pediatric, adult and obese patients to inject into the fat layer, just below the skin's surface, to avoid intramuscular (IM) injections.1

Hypoglycemia prevention

By reducing the risk of IM injections, our 6-mm and 4-mm pen needles help prevent hypoglycemia.2,3

Patient confidence

These pen needles are shorter in length, intimidating patients less.1

Needle comfort

Our BD Ultra-Fine Nano 4mm pen needles incorporate EasyFlow™ and PentaPoint™ Comfort technologies to improve insulin flow and promote injection comfort.4
