"Of 14 original quotes, the Plexus offering represented the best value for Luminetx in consideration of quality, price, and level of responsiveness to our technology and business needs. Luminetx was favorably impressed by the breadth and depth of engineering, manufacturing and service capabilities of Plexus."

"We understand the impact that the VeinViewer technology will have within the healthcare industry, and we are very pleased to have been selected to manufacture such a revolutionary product," said Dean Foate, president and CEO for Plexus Corporation.

VeinViewer has been attracting keen interest from leading national figures in phlebology, sclerotherapy, dermatology, phlebotomy, pediatric venipuncture (i.e., blood collection, IV-PICC line insertions), interventional radiology, plastic surgery and other specialty medical segments where venous access is critical to patient comfort and practitioner success.
