What are the two types of syringe tips?

The two main types of syringe tips are:

### 1. Luer Lock Tip
- **Description**: The Luer lock tip features a threaded, twist-on design that securely locks the needle onto the syringe.
- **Advantages**:
  - Provides a secure connection, preventing the needle from detaching during use.
  - Reduces the risk of leakage or accidental needle removal.
  - Commonly used in medical settings for injections that require high precision and safety.
- **Usage**: Often used for injections, blood draws, and when precise delivery is critical.

### 2. Slip Tip (or Luer Slip)
- **Description**: The slip tip, also known as a Luer slip, has a smooth, tapered design that allows the needle to be pushed onto the syringe without twisting.
- **Advantages**:
  - Easier and quicker to attach and detach needles compared to Luer lock tips.
  - Suitable for applications where a secure lock is not as critical.
- **Usage**: Frequently used for situations where fast needle changes are necessary, such as in some medical procedures or laboratory settings.

Both types of syringe tips serve specific purposes, and the choice between them depends on the requirements of the medical procedure and the need for secure attachment versus ease of use.
