    The kirschner wire is made from co35ni35cr20mo10 (mp35n) which is cobalt based alloy containing 35% nickel. however, the label and technique guide incorrectly indicate that the devices are made of stainless steel., the product is shipped with an insert which references the potential risk of allergy/hypersensitivity reactions, but there is no specific information on the label or in the technique guide with regards to the percentage of nickel content in the devices., please note: - product shipped in "kits" in new zealand are not in packaging and therefore not labelled.
