Hi, quick question concerning luer slip and lock. Is it just the same needle but a different syringe? I am very new to this field and recently mistakenly purchased the luer lock needles and syringes; and in this case I need a luer slip form factor to be compatible with an auto injector. I’m trying to see if I can just buy new syringes and make use of the needles I already have.
