Catalog type History
Provenance Syringes used plungers to deliver precise amount of liquids or gases through a cylinder. Glass syringes were ground with barrel and plunger to match (hence the same identifying number on both pieces). Later syringes had interchangeable parts and more modern syringes are single-use plastic designs. These were used by Dr. Reubin Andres, NIA, during the early phases of the Baltimore Longitudinal Study, which investigated the health issues of aging over time.
