This is a Tubex Hypodermic Syringe with quick loading technology produced by Wyeth Laboratories Inc. located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The yellow, white, and blue cardboard box lists the package number as "99A71" and the letters "XMC" were written in marker on the front of the box. An instruction manual for the syringe was found inside the box as well.
