    amps are hard to get open try putting it into a pen top next time sometimes works better

    tricky but the glass shouldnt be able to go threw the needle

    I never chance it when this happens just incase there are small fractions of glass, but I know guy who do.
    All comes down to wether you want to take the risk, no matter how small I guess.

    Ampule opener a good investment in my book

    They give ampoule openers away free at my local needle exchange, a bloody god send in my opinion! (as are the free pins and swabs!)
    Charitys are great!

    ok cheers for the quick replys, i have searched through the whole wide webb and looked on this medical site, apparently when you break an amp you will get little bits of glass what ever thats why they brought filtering needles out. But doc and nurses don't really use them. Basically when your injecting direct in to your blood stream, but for injecting in to muscle it should be fine. I will find the link again and post it if people are interested.

    My test amps only ever shattered if I heated them before opening.
     
    Now I open them up before sitting them in hot water. Never had any problems since.

    Here is a link still trying to find the orignal, one question to you all is why do you need to get all the air out of the syringe (little tiny bubbles) but when you pull back it fills with air.

    i did put my amp in hot water this morning maybe that was the problem, the oil is really thick in OMNADREN 250.

    I never chance it, glass can break into pieces too small to see. Small enough to go up the needle. 

    The question is how would you feel if you injected a small uneven shard of glass into your butt or leg?

    That is not going to be good and you could never get it out. 

    There are different amp openers some are boxes you shut and snap open, i'm not keen on them. I use the standard NHS ones a small rubber top you slip over and snap off pressing, I find them much better. 

    Stay safe its a bummer to bin an amp but better than creating a big problem.

    cheers bros i have ordered clic amp openers today. I won't chance it again but i must checked under the spot light like 50 times and in normal light and i couldn't see anything !!! but i just spoke to the nurse and she backed it what i said u get little tiny microscopic fragments from breaking amps and oil based amps it would clogg up when pulling through the needle which cause harm

    I'd suggest this as well, simple disposable pen top, works much better than the amp breaker that I bought.
