Hager introduces stainless steel tip to eliminate waste

Hager Worldwide recently introduced the Duration Air/Water Syringe Tips. Imagine the environmental impact if every practice stopped sending more than 4,000 single-use plastic air/water syringe tips to landfills each year. The medical grade stainless steel tips feature a spray pattern with multiport air ports, and save the average practice more than $4,000 over a five-year period with Duration vs. cost of disposables. Duration is backed by a five-year warranty, and a percentage of Duration sales is donated to the World Wildlife Fund.
