Carbo brand disposable acupuncture needles have set a new standard for Chinese-made acupuncture needles since their introduction in the mid 90’s
The Carbo brand needles are manufactured in China in a Class 10,000 clean room, which is ten times cleaner than most Chinese needle manufacturing plants which are operating Class 100,000 clean rooms. The Carbo brand also boasts a vertically integrated manufacturing plant with innovated quality control procedures that have made it a front runner in needle manufacturing.
One of the most important features of the Carbo brand needles is that it uses US-made vacuum forged FDA-approved Surgical Grade Stainless Steel. This specialized surgical steel has a low nickel content which makes it a first choice needle when it comes to dealing with patients with metal and lubricant allergies. The handles are made of a lightweight aluminum alloy giving it excellent thermal and electro conductivity.
These needles should be a standard component in all clinics due to their hypo-allergenic features.
