Cold Spring Harbor, NY, June 8, 2009 – AccuVein today announced a three–year agreement with Group Services for America’s Blood Centers (GSABC) bringing the world’s first hand–held, non–contact vein illumination device, to GSABC member blood centers. Under the agreement, GSABC will provide participating blood centers access to vein illumination to help locate hard–to–find veins. The revolutionary device projects a pattern of light on a patient’s skin revealing vein position to help the healthcare professional locate veins for blood draw (venipuncture).

“Providing the members of GSABC with vein illumination is a big step towards reaching our goal – providing all health professionals with a device that may reduce time and effort to access veins,” said Stephen P. Conlon, President, AccuVein.

“GSABC is committed to providing our members access to the latest technology – enhancing their Centers and providing their donors with top–of–the–line service,” said Jerome Haarmann, President, GSABC.
