The disposal hypodermic syringe, a plastic version of its glass predecessor, is a type of syringe consisting of a hollow cylinder, usually of glass or plastic, a tightly fitting piston, and a hollow needle (hypodermic needle), used for withdrawing blood samples and/ or injecting medicine (or vaccines).
