Acufast tubes are compact, flexible, and pinchable providing rigidity but also allowing for a variety of new needling techniques. The reduced tube thickness means that less plastic is used and the individual pouch packs are fully recyclable.

Practitioners are able to grasp the needle handle with the tube by pinching the tube while the needle is still in the package. The time and overall procedure of loading the tube is very quick compared to other bulk packaged needles often considered a deterrent in bulk packed needles for tube users.

Tubes are sold separately in packs of 5 giving practitioners the option of using the tubes as needed.

Determining How Many Tubes to Order:

The most common question received from practitioners who use tubes is, “How do I know how many tubes I need to add to my order?”

A Simple Formula:

  • Calculate the average number of same size needles used on one patient then divide this number by 1000.
  • The resulting number should be the number of tubes you will need to purchase for each box.
  • Next, further divide this number by 5 to determine the number of pouches.
  • Do this calculation for each size needle that you use in your clinic.

An Example:

  • In general, assume you use 20 same-sized needles for each patient (10 on the front and 10 on the back).
    • (1000/20) = 50 tubes total per box of 1,000 needles
  • Now take the number of tubes you need and divide by
    • 50 tubes / 5 = 10 pouches
  • Therefore, since each pouch of tubes contains 5 tubes I would need 10 pouches.
