Plastic disposable syringes were first introduced in 1961. When the “Disposables Revolution” arrived, it greatly reduced the number of infections transferred between patients because syringes became single-use only. Medical operations also became more efficient as the sterilization process for reusable glass syringes was no longer required. The transition from glass to plastic syringes seemed like a no-brainer.
