Your hand will appear to glow red, and if you look closely you should be able to see thin black lines inside your hand or fingers. These are your veins.
What light is used to find veins?
Vein visualization (also known as vein illumination) uses Near-infrared (NIR) imaging for detecting veins. This proven technology enables accurate visualization of the veins under the skin. The AccuVein AV400 employs two safe barcode-scanner class lasers: an invisible infrared and a visible red.
Does red light help find veins?
The hemoglobin (oxygen-carrying protein) within the patient’s blood absorbs the light, creating a red pattern that can be seen on the surface of the skin. The oxygen-depleted veins appear darker in the pattern, indicating the presence of a vein.
What is a vein Transilluminator?

How can I visualize veins better?
Two types of infrared light methods are mostly used to visualize veins. One is by using far-infrared (FIR) light. The other one is by using NIR light. By utilizing these two types of IR camera methods, researchers can obtain images of procedures ranging from visualizing vein structures to performing segmentation.
What is a neonatal Transilluminator?
Transilluminator or Fibre optic Neonatal Transilluminator is a device that uses high intensity cool LED light to visualize veins in the body of the neonates, infant and pediatric. It also diagnoses pneumothorax and assists in finding hydrocephalus.
How do Vein finders work?
Vein Finders are optical devices that use the behavior of Infrared light to create an image and superimpose project it onto the viewing area. Infrared light is projected onto the viewing area and is absorbed at the locations where blood (veins) reside. Where light is absorbed there is less light reflected.
