Cold Spring Harbor, NY, August 4, 2009 – AccuVein, maker of the AV300, the world’s first hand-held, non-contact vein illumination device, announced today that its medical device now carries a CE Mark, enabling the Company to commence European sales of AccuVein’s AV300.
“Receiving approval to ship the AV300 to Europe is an important step in bringing this beneficial device to healthcare practitioners around the globe,” said Stephen P. Conlon, President of AccuVein. “Furthermore, Europe provides a significant growth opportunity for AccuVein allowing us to build upon our successful launch in the United States.”
AccuVein recently achieved an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 13485 Certification, acknowledging that its quality management processes meet international standards.
The AccuVein AV300 helps advance patient care in a variety of settings by assisting healthcare professionals in locating the vein quickly for blood draws, intravenous lines and delivery of medications. Weighing only 10 ounces, the AV300 uses point-and-click technology – the healthcare professional simply presses a button and positions the device above the patient’s skin to display a map on the skin of underlying veins. With a range of hands-free options, the AV300 can quickly switch between a hand-held and hands-free mode, freeing the practitioner’s hands to perform the venipuncture.
