Kolben


Explanation:
In a syringe, it's a Kolben.

From Bunjes, WB Medizin und Pharmazeutik:
plunger = Kolben (der Spritze)

Here is more info than you probably want or need, from Pschyrembel:
Injektionsspritzen (­): Instrumente zur Injektion* flüssiger bzw. gelöster Arzneimittel in Körpergewebe, z. T. auch zur Punktion*; I. bestehen aus einem graduierten Kunststoff- od. Glaszylinder mit zentrischem (Rekordspritze) od. exzentrischem (zur leichteren hautparallelen Injektion: Loeb-Spritze) Kanülenansatz u. einem beweglichen Kolben aus Metall (Rekordspritze), Glas (zur Injektion von Substanzen, die sich bei Metallkontakt verändern: Lüer-Spritze) od. Kunststoff. Heute werden zur Injektion fast ausschließlich Einmalspritzen aus Kunststoff verwendet. Vgl. Injektionskanülen.
