UnitedPharma Named Preferred Blood Center Distributor for AccuVein AV300

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- AccuVein LLC today announced a three-year agreement with Group Services for America's Blood Centers (GSABC) bringing the AccuVein AV300, the world's first hand-held, non-contact vein illumination device, to GSABC member blood centers. Under the agreement, GSABC will provide participating blood centers access to the AV300 to help locate hard-to-find veins.
