30% of practitioners don't use guide tubes, so to prevent unused tubes from ending up in the trash, Acufast offers them separately from the needles. Ordering tubes separately is new for a lot of practitioners and the most common question we receive is: "How many pouches of tubes should I [...]
Gamma Ray sterilization uses radiation to sterilize the needles, and typically the only byproduct of this sterilization process is ozone.
