Futuremed is pleased to offer Astodia, a vein illuminator designed specifically for premature infants and full-term newborns. Preemies and newborns have small and fragile veins, making it difficult to draw blood or insert an IV or diagnostic device with the first puncture. Developed by a leading neonatologist, Astodia uses the latest generation of high-powered LEDs to provide clear views of even the smallest vessels.



  • The Next Generation in Neonatal / Pediatric Vein Illumination
  • Quick and efficient vein location ideal for premature and newborn infants
  • LEDs placed underneath target for maximum surface illumination
  • Red and yellow LEDs allow for optimum illumination at various tissue depths
  • Nine different illumination settings provide peak performance in various environments
  • Slim handset for maximum manipulative ability
  • Ideal for hydrocele, hydroperitoneum and pneumothorax identification, as well as PICC line placements
  • Safety dimmer / cut-off protects sensitive skin and conserves battery life
  • Pocket size for easy portability
  • Rechargable battery means device is always ready for use
  • Hard plastic case keeps all components together and protected

Astodia utilizes both red and yellow wavelengths are available individually to accommodate different patient sizes, skin colors, and vein depths. The yellow light is for viewing smaller veins closer to the skin surface, while the red light illuminates deeper targets. The LEDs are adjustable with nine different gradients of brightness, for clear vein targeting with various tissue densities under diverse lighting conditions. The LED probe is lightweight, with rounded edges, and can be held under targeted extremities without undue patient movement. The rounded edges ensure a good fit in one hand, leaving the other available for other tasks.

Use Astodia in:

  • NICU’s
  • PICU’s
  • Operating Rooms
  • Emergency Rooms
  • Labs
  • Transports
  • Wherever quick and efficient infant needle sticks are needed


Astodia’s yellow LED creates sharp contrast, clearly showing veins in smaller extremities.

The red diode LED is ideal for illuminating deeper tissues.

In addition, the red LED can be used for hydrocele, hydroperitoneum, and pneumothorax diagnoses.
