AccuVein LLC is a privately held company that develops products that aid in the visualization of peripheral vasculature. Its headquartered in Cold Spring Harbor, New York and its sales offices are in Kansas City, Missouri.
Venipuncture is the most commonly performed invasive medical procedure. Because its success has relied largely upon the health care professional’s sense of touch and instincts, the procedure has historically been associated with a high error rate. The company′s products can significantly reduce the error rate.
AccuVein's first product is the AV300. The AV300 is a hand held device that is shone on the body of a patient to enhance the visual contrast of the veins. Because venipuncture is an operation that requires both hands to be free, AccuVein also offers hands-free stands to allow the user to position the device over the patient's body. This device works by shining an infra red light on the area, observing it with a camera, and projecting the image onto the patient's skin.
