Hypodermic syringe set, 'Tabloid' brand, for quinine injection, with Record syringe, nickel plated brass, by Burroughs Wellcome and Co., Berlin, 1910-1914
The hypodermic syringe was used to give injections of quinine hydrochloride into the body. Quinine is used as an anti-malaria treatment and can also be given in tablet form. The kit contains a hypodermic syringe, paraffin-coated needles – to protect the needles during transportation – and twenty tablets and test tubes to make up solutions for injection. Sold by Burroughs, Wellcome & Co, the kit would have been used by those traveling to areas where malaria was common, such as Africa.
