Structural Biochemistry/Intradermal


Intradermal (ID) drug administration is the injection of a small amount of fluid into the dermal layer of the skin. The needle most commonly used for this technique is the tuberculin syringe with a 26-gauge needle, which is about one-fourth to one-half inch in length. A small amount of swelling in the skin after injection is to be expected.
