The technology is intuitive. Patients can choose to have the device draw their blood for them and go through the blood draw completely independently under the supervision of a trained blood drawing staff member. This new way of taking blood will complement the usual form of blood sampling. The use of the devices should make up for the shortage of staff, allowing the busy blood collection clinic to be organized more efficiently.
“After more than 5 years of co-creation and development with OLVG Lab, this is a special moment”, says Toon Overbeeke, co-founder and CEO of Vitestro. “It is a privilege to be the first to place our innovation at OLVG Lab. Together, we will make sure this innovation will become a great success for both employees and patients.”About OLVG Lab
