Use of 1/2 cc Syringes In Your Facility

I wanted to see if anyone is stocking and using syringes that are smaller than 1 mL volume- specifically 1/2 mL. If so, was this decision made to help with accuracy and/or volume errors with a total volume ( TV) less than 1 mL. This question is not geared to the use of TB syringes.

Thanks.
