English translation:syringe, injector
Explanation:
If it means injection, it is not correct/standard Finnish (ruiske, injektio, injektioneste). My choice would depend on additional context, the intended audience, etc.

Clearly this has something to do with subcutaneous injection, but I would expect a product name to include a specific standard term like "injektioneste, liuos" (solution for injection) or "esitäytetty ruisku" (pre-filled syringe). Syringe would be correct for "ruisku" if these are manufacturing instructions for a pre-filled syringe. Injection would make more sense if these are instructions for preparing an injectable substance.

Asker: Hi this is valmistusohje (instructions for preparation?) for that drug and that is the product name. The whole thing is about the medication, so it has to be injection rather than syringe. Even if the Finnish is wrong I guess?

Asker: Hi Anu It is the latter case. Ruisku receives a translation of 'injection' on eur-lex sites even if it is not strictly correct. May be a grey area in the Finnish. Thanks for your help.
