AccuVein AV300 Helps Healthcare Professionals Locate Hard-to-Find-Veins

Advances Quality of Patient Care in Venipuncture, Most Common Invasive Medical Procedure

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- AccuVein LLC today announced the launch of AccuVein AV300, the world's first hand-held, non-contact vein illumination device that helps healthcare professionals locate hard-to-find veins.

The AV300 can help reduce the need for multiple needle sticks, with the goal of improving patient care and the time to access veins.
