A cold-light transilluminator designed to quickly and safely find veins in the smallest of neonates.

The Pediascan® Model 500 is a cordless, handheld cold-light fiberoptic transilluminator that is designed with a variable intensity rotary dial to ensure the healthcare professional has the optimum contrast between veins and organs and the surrounding tissue.  The Model 500 is capable of quickly and safely finding veins.  As with all of our other models, the brilliant white light is peaked in the light spectrum for best contrast with the human eye.  Each unit is built by hand in the United States of America.
