How much test is being lost in a non-fixed needle syringe?

I'm wondering because I'm using a non-fixed needle 1ml syringe with 27g needles.
You never push all of it out at once and I'm injecting 0.2ml at a time (40mg).

Does anyone know this? I buy the supplies for a couple of months for maybe 2$ max. The clinic I go to wants to sell fixed-needle syringes to me for about 120$ (not sure how much but I don't really care.. that's a lot for mark-up).

insulin syringes are commonly priced at $10-15 per hundred.

the slip tip type of syringe wastes .35-.40 ml of fluid. If you draw from the vial and inject with the same needle attached, the amount you inject is what you registered on the syringe mark. The waste part is a constant variable. Using this syringe will allow you to change the needle if desired before injecting.

As I stated before when it comes down to minimizing wasted medication low dead space fixed (permanently attached needle) insulin syringes are where it's at my man!
