OK, so this is not the most exciting subject, but one we need to address. A common question (More common than you would think)...
Q:I Need to store and ship a plastic syringe full of liquid or oil. How will I keep it from leaking or spilling?
A:Use a Luer-Lok Syringe cap! Luer-Lok (Aka Luer-Lock) caps are designed to fit any standard syringe or squeeze bottle that utilizes the standard Luer Taper fitting.
Q:What's a Luer Taper?
A:(From WikiPedia) The Luer taper is a standardized system of small-scale fluid fittings used for making leak-free connections between a male-taper fitting and its mating female part on medical and laboratory instruments.
Q:What's a Luer-Lok Fitting?
A: (From WikiPedia) There are two varieties of Luer taper connections: locking and slipping. "Luer-Lok" and "Luer-slip" are registered trademarks of Becton Dickinson. "Luer-Lok" style connectors are often generically referred to as "Luer lock", and "Luer-slip" style connectors may be generically referred to as "slip tip". Luer lock fittings are securely joined by means of a tabbed (or threaded) hub on the female fitting which screws into threads in a sleeve on the male fitting.
Slip tip (Luer-slip) fittings simply conform to Luer taper dimensions and are pressed together and held by friction (they have no threads).
