AccuVein’s near-infrared (NIR) technology enables healthcare professionals to visualize the superficial vasculature in order to identify veins for optimal peripheral venous access or avoiding veins during aesthetic procedures.
With more than 90% of patients undergoing IV therapy at some point during a hospital stay, AccuVein is a simple, safe solution that can increase vein assessment proficiency, help avoid patient IV complications, and address clinical and operational priorities.
Clinicians can see veins, valves, and bifurcations not visible to the naked eye, leading to better-informed site assessment decisions, improved needle/catheter placement, and enhanced patient care.
The AccuVein AV500 is a near-infrared vein visualization device using a low power, Class 1 laser to display a real time image of veins on to the surface of the skin through a bright green image projection.
With the patented True Center™ technology, AccuVein is the first and only vein visualization device that is permanently aligned and does not require calibration, allowing clinicians to accurately view the center-line of the vein.
The AV500 has three brightness settings and an inverse color mode display, to allow the user/clinician to customize the image to their environment.
At only 10 ounces (283g), the device is lightweight and handheld. It easily converts to hands-free with the use of an optional mobile, powered stand or a pole mount fixture.

Features and Benefits
Imaging veins and blood patterns pre, during and post procedure ensures proper site selection, aids in successful catheter insertion and may help identify hematomas, infiltration or post-flush vein refill.
The high speed near-infrared (NIR) laser technology allows for crisp image processing and quick scanning. Rapid image refresh rates result in no lag or image distortion; accommodates patient movement.
The True Center™ technology allows clinicians to accurately view the center-line of the vein regardless of the distance. Unlike other vein visualization devices, the AV500 is permanently aligned and there is no need for device calibration prior to use.
An accurate, in-focus image to scale is projected when the device is positioned 6-10 inches (15 -25 cm) above the patient’s skin surface.
Using the AccuVein™ AV500 allows clinicians to visualize veins, bifurcations, valves, blood refill, and related blood patterns up to 10mm below the surface of the skin. Otherwise, not seen by the naked eye or through palpation.
The AccuVein™ AV500 provides a clear, uniform vein image for all skin tones and has variable brightness settings to accommodate all light conditions.
With a one button instant on and a sleek, ergonomic design, the AV500 is the leading vein visualization device on the market. It is permanently aligned and in-focus when positioned 6-10 inches (15 -25 cm) above the patient’s skin surface.
The device is lightweight and ergonomic; weighing only 10 oz (283 grams) and easy to hold in one hand for an initial scan.
Quickly convert to handsfree by inserting the AV500 into either the AccuVein™ HF510 Portable Arm Mount or HF580 Powered Wheeled Stand.
The device is eye-safe to use under all conditions with no special precautions required.
The sealed housing design contains no fans or vents! Just simply wipe down the device using isopropyl alcohol or hospital wipes (see IFU for approved cleaners).
Near-infrared (NIR) vein visualization is emerging as the standard of care.
