Luminetx VeinViewer makes your red blood green



I have this phobia of needles, which makes taking blood from me pretty much impossible. But now a company called Luminetx has invented the Vein Viewer which uses near infra red light locate the veins in the body. The light reflects off tissues surrounding veins but not the blood cells inside veins. The system picks up the reflected light, processes it and then beams a picture back onto the skin, highlighting the vein locations and thus making it easier for any health professionals to get the vein on the first try. (Not that they get one with me, but it may be good for you.) [GT]
