Platelet Reach Vein Check Usefulness

Help Reduce Patient Pain and Stress

MS1008 can help in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) procedures to:

• Identify best access site
• See vein movement or rolling
• Visualize vein patency
• Reduce patient pain and stress


By using vein visualization by Medisource Vein Finders, many veins that might be otherwise undetectable without a vein locator, can be located and mapped on the patient’s skin. So whether is it a PRP procedure is being performed for an aesthetic procedure, sports medicine, or dentistry, MS1008 can help.

An Essential Tool

When you are performing PRP procedures MS1008 vein visualization can help you to assess or identify veins. Imagine how much more effective you would be with a map of the vasculature highlighted on the surface of the skin. More effective procedures with less patient discomfort result in higher patient satisfaction making it clear why so many facilities have chosen to incorporate Medisource into their standard of care.

How Does It Work?

Hemoglobin in the blood absorbs infrared light. When the device is held above the skin, veins appear noticeably different than the surrounding tissue. The vasculature shows up clearly on the skin’s surface, aiding in vein location for access and avoidance.
