AccuVein AV300, First Portable Vein Illumination Device, Now Available on GSA Schedule
Date:6/29/2009

5-Year Contract Makes AccuVein's Device Now Available to Veteran and Military Hospitals

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- AccuVein LLC today announced a five-year agreement with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). This agreement brings the AccuVein AV300, the world's first hand-held, non-contact vein illumination device, to GSA organizations including military and veteran hospitals.

The AccuVein AV300 helps healthcare professionals locate hard-to-find veins. IV starts, blood draws and blood donation (venipuncture) can be a source of patient anxiety and discomfort, and accessing veins in difficult patients can take up to 10 minutes and require multiple needle sticks. Venipuncture is the most common invasive medical procedure with an estimated 2.7 million procedures conducted every day in the United States alone. The AV300 can help reduce the need for multiple needle sticks, with the goal of improving patient care and the time to access veins.

"Adding the AccuVein AV300 on the GSA schedule brings a valuable device to these healthcare professionals at the front-line of patient care, enabling them to see a vein map on the skin to improve the time, comfort and cost of care," said Stephen P. Conlon, President, AccuVein. "We've had strong interest from a broad range of Military, Federal and State medical institutions and the GSA agreement enables greater access to this important advancement in patient care."

Weighing only 10 ounces, the AV300 uses point-and-click technology -- the healthcare professional simply presses a button and positions the device above the patient's skin to display a map on the skin of underlying veins. With a range of hands-free options, the AV300 can quickly switch between a hand-held and hands-free mode, freeing the practitioner's hands to perform the venipuncture.

Government organizations that can purchase the AccuVein AV300 from the GSA Schedule include:

  • The Department of Health and Human Services
  • Indian Health Service and the Office of Tribal Programs
  • Department of Justice
  • Federal Bureau of Prisons
  • Department of Defense
  • VA Medical Centers, Clinics and Military Hospitals
