The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) will be one of the first blood banks to use the VeinViewer Flex, a product of Christie Medical, to help make blood donations more comfortable for young donors. “With some donors, it’s difficult to find small veins for donation,” said Brian Clark, director of Donor Services at STBTC. “This technology we’ve invested in will help our phlebotomists find the right vein to help minimize discomfort during donation.”
