Use and Dosage 

To use the 31G – 8mm Short Ultra Fine Pen Needle, follow these general steps: 

  1. Prepare your medication: Ensure you have the correct medication and insulin pen ready for use. Follow the instructions provided by your healthcare professional or the medication packaging. 
  2. Wash your hands: Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water before handling the pen needle and preparing for the injection. This helps maintain proper hygiene and reduce the risk of infection. 
  3. Attach the needle: Remove the cap from the insulin pen and carefully screw on the 31G – 8mm Short Ultra Fine Pen Needle. Ensure it is securely attached but do not overtighten. 
  4. Prime the pen: Follow the specific instructions provided with your pen device to prime the pen and remove any air bubbles from the needle. This step helps ensure accurate dosage delivery. 
  5. Select the injection site: Choose an appropriate injection site, typically the fatty tissue just under the skin on the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. Rotate injection sites to avoid developing lumps or skin reactions. 
  6. Clean the injection site: Wipe the selected injection site with an alcohol swab and allow it to dry. This helps reduce the risk of infection. 
  7. Administer the injection: Hold the pen device like a pen or pencil and gently pinch the skin at the cleaned injection site. Insert the needle into the pinched skin at a 90-degree angle or as directed by your healthcare professional. Depress the plunger fully to inject the medication. 

After the injection, carefully remove the needle from the injection site by pulling it straight out. Do not recap the needle. Safely dispose of the used needle in a sharps container as per local regulations and guidelines. Do not re-cap, bend, or break the needle to avoid accidental injuries. 


  • Although rare, some individuals may have allergies or sensitivities to certain materials used in needle construction. If you experience any signs of allergic reactions, such as rash, hives, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention immediately. 
  • Always dispose of used needles safely and in accordance with local regulations. Used needles should never be re-capped, bent, or broken before disposal. Proper disposal helps prevent accidental needlestick injuries and reduces the risk of infection. 
  • Ensure that the 31G – 8mm Short Ultra Fine Pen Needle is compatible with your specific pen injection device. Different pen devices may have specific requirements for needle compatibility, use the correct needle type to ensure proper functioning and dosage accuracy. 
  • Ensure that the needle is inserted to the appropriate depth for subcutaneous injections. Inserting the needle too deeply or not deep enough may affect the absorption and effectiveness of the medication. 
  • Follow proper injection techniques when using any needle. This includes cleaning the injection site with an alcohol swab, using a new needle for each injection, and properly disposing of used needles in a sharps container to prevent accidental needlestick injuries. 
  • Regularly rotating the injection sites can help prevent the development of lipohypertrophy (thickened fatty tissue) or lipoatrophy (thinning of fatty tissue) at the injection sites. This is especially important for individuals who require frequent injections. 
  • Some individuals may experience skin reactions, such as redness, swelling, or itching, at the injection site. If you notice any unusual or persistent reactions, consult with a healthcare professional. 
  • Store the pen needles in a cool, dry place to maintain their integrity and sterility. Avoid exposing them to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight, as this may affect their performance or sterility.
