Do The DongBang Needles Contain Nickel?

Our DongBang needles are made of surgical stainless-steel SUS 304, and contains 18% Cr and 8% Ni and other elements less proportion, Manganese (Mn), Silicon (Si), Carbon (C), Molybdenum (Mo), Phosphorus (P), Sulphur (S). This composition is the same in all the single use needles and approved by ISO standard on sterile acupuncture. However, the needle body is coated with medical grade silicone, which provides a barrier to avoid direct contact between the body and the needle. Therefore, it is very rare to see a nickel allergy with the DongBang needles.

My Patient Has A Nickel Allergy, Can I Still Use Needles?

All acupuncture needles use the same stainless steels containing nickel (NI). An NI allergic reaction is extremely rare as the needle shaft is coated with silicone and needle insertion is usually for less than 20 minutes. Having said that we can not guarantee your patient will not encounter an allergic reaction.
