May 5, 2014 - While looking for solutions to pediatric infusion therapies, Tim Maguire and colleagues Kevin Nikitczuk and Martin Yarmush developed the VascuLogic Venous Pro™, an all in one point of care solution for venous access.
April 29, 2014 - If the CEO behind medical device developer VascuLogic is right, the time-consuming practice of hunting around patients’ arms for the right vein in which to plunge needles for blood tests and drug delivery will be transformed into a much more efficient process. Tim Maguire has developed an innovative medical device that combines an imaging component to identify good veins with automated venous access.
January 20, 2014 - A new medical device has been developed that will provide phlebotomists and clinicians with a technology to enable blood drawing accuracy at first stick. This is particularly important considering the diverse patient demographic each with various levels of difficult venous access. Soon, this enhanced accuracy will greatly reduce patient discomfort as well as procedure time and cost.
January 14, 2014 - A team of researchers from VascuLogic, LLC, have developed an automated venipuncture medical device that automates the phlebotomy procedure, either for blood draws or the placement of IV lines. In both in vitro and in vivo validation studies, including validation on human subjects, reportedly the device demonstrated greater than 95 per cent first stick accuracy, and additionally outperformed human phlebotomist controls.
September 13, 2013 - A new medical device has been developed that will provide phlebotomists and clinicians with a technology to enable first stick blood drawing accuracy at significantly higher levels than is currently obtainable in the difficult venous access patient demographic. This enhanced accuracy will markedly reduce patient discomfort as well as procedure time and cost. The paper describing this novel advance appears in the inaugural issue of the new journal "Technology".
November 2013 - Venipuncture is pivotal to a wide range of clinical interventions and is consequently the leading cause of medical injury in the U.S. Complications associated with venipuncture are exacerbated in difficult settings, where the rate of success depends heavily on the patient's physiology and the practitioner's experience. In this paper, we describe a device that improves the accuracy and safety of the procedure by autonomously establishing a peripheral line for blood draws and IV's.
