Use of syringe tips manufactured by a company other than A-dec may result in damage to the O-rings inside the syringe tip retainer assembly. Damage to these O-rings can result in syringe tip ejection. Many disposable syringe tips have sharp corners on the water tube, which cut the O-ring sealing the water from the air in the tip.
To help you easily identify genuine A-dec syringe tips, a distinguishing “a” mark is located above three grooves on each tip. A-dec syringe tips also have a bright nickel chrome finish.
