The VeinViewer® from Greiner Bio-One helps doctors and healthcare workers with venous access for venipunture by providing a visualization of the veins beneath the skin.
The VeinViewer uses harmless near-infrared (NIR) light which is absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood and surrounding tissue and reflected back to the VeinViewer device, where the data is processed into an image; colour is added and the image is reflected back to the skin surface to provide a real time visualization of the blood vessels and patterns up to 10 mm below the skin. High Definition technology helps provide the clinician with clear, sharp imaging to support routine healthcare work when vein conditions are poor.
Two devices are available: VeinViewer Flex and VeinViewer Vision2
VeinViewer Flex is a portable device for use in emergency situations or in rooms with limited space. The VeinViewer Flex can be made static by using the flexible arm provided for attachment to a table or arm of a chair, for example.
The VeinViewer Vision2 is a mobile imaging unit with an arm reaching up to 135 cm. The VeinViewer Vision2 is attached to a trolley for easy transportation between beds or phlebotomy chairs.
VeinViewer is recommended for many application areas:
- Vein care centres – spider veins
- Dialysis wards
- Casualty / emergency situations, triage
- Doctors’ offices
