Cold Spring Harbor, NY, October, 2009 – AccuVein today announced a five-year agreement with the Ferrer Group, a leading international pharmaceutical and medical devices distribution company, providing the AccuVein AV300, the world’s first hand-held, non-contact vein illumination device, to customers in Greece, Spain and Portugal. The AccuVein AV300 helps healthcare professionals locate veins for blood draw, IV infusion and blood donation by projecting a pattern of light on a patient’s skin that reveals vein position.
“Ferrer Group’s broad customer base share a common desire – to use advanced medical technology products that add value to reducing costs and improving patient care,” said José Luis Lirio, Ferrer Group. “We’re pleased to bring the world’s only portable vein illumination device into our distribution.”
“This agreement significantly expands the AV300’s global availability into these important markets,” said Stephen P. Conlon, President of AccuVein. “Healthcare practitioners in Greece, Spain and Portugal now have access to the device to reduce time and effort in accessing veins.”
