    I have a question about the syringe covers. Are they going to be left as-is or will you be cutting the closed end off for better flow through?

    The ones Ric has pictured are open on the ends. The syringe comes complete with the needle, but the needle has its own cover. So the open end is for the needle side to stick through. I am not sure how long ago they swapped over to this set up. They used to have the syringes and the needles seperate, maybe they still do.

    I would think that the anti-bacterial nature of the plastic and the extremely slick surface texture would prevent syringe tubes from being a good option. You need plastics that are more neutral and have some increased surface area on a microscopic level.
