    Default Unsealed, on the loose syringes

    I was wondering how common-place it is for vaping supplies vendors to provide syringes on the loose, not in original sealed sterile packaging?

    I bought a single syringe from GotVapes for filling my cartomizers, and was surprised to receive it on the loose with all the other items in my order. The syringe had printed on it "FOR INSULIN USE ONLY." I've received similar vaping related accessories from other vendors, and these products have been sent in their original sealed packaging.

    When I contacted GotVapes they informed me that this is common practice, relating it to syringes used for diabetics that come in 50 packs. However, family members I have that rely on syringes and similar medical supplies have always been provided individually hygienically sterile syringes and the like.

    As I stated, I have not found any other vape-related vendors that I've done business with to provide anything but sterile products. So, I am curious as to what other vendors out there practice this "on-the-loose" product delivery and how this is acceptable practice?

    Thank you

    Was there a sharp needle with it? If not, they probably opened the package to remove it.

    If I remember correctly, BD's do not have removable needles. Some other company does have the removable needles. It would be my guess that if it was not in a package it would be a BD with a permanent needle... though how common this is to ship to customers I couldn't say.

    The BD's I have came with a removable leur loc needle. Do your syringes have leur loc fittings?

    It was a steel blunt-tipped needle applicator, and that part was separate and actually wrapped in its own packaging; the syringe was separate. You stick that needle applicator onto the syringe base. There's no screwing, so if it's not shoved on tight enough you can leak juice. But still, the syringe could easily be contaminated by the other products I ordered, by the person who packaged the order if they didn't wear gloves and package in a sanitary environment, etc. There's just no guarantee that the syringe I received wasn't pre-used for all I know. But even if that's an outlandish possibility, there still remains the fact that it's exposed to the other products and yada yada. It seems like some serious health-code violations. Even syringes for doing arts and crafts are more hygienically supplied.

    If you think it's "contaminated", clean it then.

    Are your atomizer sterile? Are your drip tips sterile? No.

    What do you do with your filling syringe when you're done with it?

    I'm not flaming you, I just think you are getting scared for no reason.

    I buy diabetic needles for one of my dogs that has diabetes. I get them in boxes of 100. Sometimes they come individually sealed and sometimes they come in 10 bags of 10 with plastic caps on the top and bottom and not sealed. Same manufacturer in both cases.

    Why even order them? I buy mine from a local pharmacy. I get 10 syringes with 18g sharps for $1.30. I then order my blunt luer loc tips from some website.

    Not all states permit the purchase without an RX
