Greiner Bio-One’s VeinViewer makes veins visible for venipuncture
Greiner Bio-One has launched their VeinViewer® which makes veins visible and helps to improve the success rate of an initial venipuncture. This significantly increases patient satisfaction and safety.
The VeinViewer uses harmless near-infrared (NIR) light which is directed towards the patient’s skin. Haemoglobin in the blood absorbs the NIR light and the surrounding tissue reflects it back to the VeinViewer device, where the data is processed into an image. Colour is added and the image is reflected on to the skin to provide a real time visualization of the blood vessels up to 10 mm below the skin.
High definition imaging technology helps provide clinicians with clear, sharp imaging which is particularly useful when vein visibility is poor.
Two VeinViewer devices are available. VeinViewer Flex is a portable device for use in emergency situations. It can also be made static by using the flexible arm to attach it to a table top or chair arm for example, which is useful when space is limited.
The VeinViewer Vision2 is a mobile imaging unit with an arm reaching up to 1.35 metres. It is attached to a trolley for easy transportation between beds or phlebotomy chairs.
