Plastic hypodermic syringe with a “monoject” inscription. Zbislaw Roehr (1902-1970) was born in Poland, emigrated to the United States in 1939, and established a medical supply firm in Waterbury, Ct. Roehr Products began manufacturing disposable hypodermic needles in 1955 and introduced the term “monoject” in 1957. Three years later, when Brunswick Corp. acquired the firm, Roehr Products was described as the “leading maker of disposable hypodermic needles and sterile disposable hypodermic syringes.”
