General information

For injection of a local anaesthetic and for spinal anaesthesia.

For taking spinal fluid samples.


Components & materials:

Cannula: stainless steel, without silicone.


Stylet: stainless steel, without silicone.


Base: polypropylene or polyamide.


Cap: rigid plastic.


- The cannula is cylindrical; at one end it has a base that is either opaque or translucent, and at the other end a short bevelled tip, called a "Quinck".

This short spine bevelled tip, used around the spine, is designed to separate the dural fibres rather than cutting them, thus reducing damage and the loss of cerebrospinal fluid.

- The stylet is the same length as the tube; it fits properly into the needle lumen and indicates the bevel position of the needle.

- The base allows the needle to be connected to a syringe and is formed by a conical female Luer connection. Colour-coding permits easy identification of the needle’s external diameter.


Spinal needles, identified according to their gauge (18G, 9G, etc), have 2 measurements: the first indicates the external diameter and the second the length of the cannula (both in mm).


22G: 0.7 x 75mm, black


25G: 0.5 x 75mm, orange
