AccuVein Sells Multiple AV300s to First European Customer

August 17, 2009

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ — AccuVein LLC today announced its first international sale to The Doctors Laboratory (TDL), the largest independent provider of clinical laboratory diagnostic services in the United Kingdom, bringing the AccuVein AV300, the world’s first hand-held, non-contact vein illumination device, to the United Kingdom (UK). The AccuVein AV300 helps healthcare professionals locate veins for blood draw (venipuncture) by projecting a pattern of light on a patient’s skin that reveals vein position.

“Our phlebotomists had positive experiences in initial testing of the device on a variety of patient types which influenced our decision to purchase multiple AccuVein AV300 units for use in our facility,” said Gill Swain-Coad, Group Service Manager of The Doctors Laboratory. “We see this device as an essential component in improving the patient experience — reducing the time to access veins and increasing first attempt success rates. We’re excited to incorporate the AV300 into our daily practice with every patient.”

“The Doctors Laboratory’s investment in multiple AV300 units underscores the individual phlebotomist’s need and desire for the device for use with venipuncture, the most common invasive medical procedure,” said Stephen P. Conlon, President of AccuVein.

AccuVein recently achieved several certifications on the AccuVein AV300 design and quality management processes, including a CE Mark and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 13485 Certification, enabling the Company to commence European sales of the AV300. AccuVein is shipping the units from the United States and will provide on-site training and support by its international sales team.
