Cleaning Instructions

Did you know that AccuVein now offers customized Protective Covers to make it easier to keep the device and stand clean between patients? These polypropylene barriers can be used with every patient to supplement your cleaning procedures and as standard of care in isolation settings. This added layer of protection covers both the device and hands-free stand without compromising the device’s crisp vein image. Learn more about AccuVein’s Protective Cover here.

AccuVein recommends that devices be cleaned when required and as necessary to follow institutional cleaning protocols.

Please note that when cleaning any AccuVein device or accessory, the wipe used, (see approved wipes below), should be firmly squeezed to remove excess cleaning fluid. This helps to prevent the pooling of liquid in crevices and depressions, which can damage the plastic. Caution: Do not submerge any part of AccuVein Products in liquid.
