A hand-held vein illuminator device has officially passed safety and design standards in order to be marketed internationally. The AccuVein AV300 has already had a successful launch in the United States and is now going to be available for physicians in Europe.
"Receiving approval to ship the AV300 to Europe is an important step in bringing this beneficial device to health care practitioners around the globe," said the President of AccuVein.
The AV300 helps locate hard-to-find veins with ease, allowing physicians to improve their care without the trouble of searching for viable veins. The technology is lightweight and can be used as a hand-held device or hands-free if the physician needs to perform a procedure. AccuVein hopes that this technology will make venous treatment easier and more efficient for physicians.
