Needle Technologies

Creganna’s sophisticated manufacturing processes enable a seamless manufacturing solution for specialty needles from handle to tip.

Needle Points

High precision needle tips are manufactured to your specification from standard hypodermic needle points to complex multi-faceted designs. All tips are precision ground for uniform sharpness to maximize efficacy in use. A unique manufacturing process achieves sophisticated point geometries for the most advanced clinical applications.


Precision manufactured cannulae are available in a range of standard and customized styles.

Trocars & Stylets

Tube and wire based trocars and stylets are available in both standard or custom designs.

Needle Shaft Marking

Needle shafts can be marked using a number of process approaches – pad printing, laser marking & chemical etching. Mark types include depth markers, text and numeric symbols.

Needle Shaping

Needle shafts can be bent or curved in a variety of configurations.

Echogenic Enhancement

Echogenic enhancement is provided for specialty needles used under ultrasound guidance. Echogenic needle profiling is provided via laser and mechanical based processes.
