Note: Fragility of preterm infant epidermis is due to incomplete maturation of the skin barrier. Therefore, the Veinlite NEO should be used with care. The VNEO has been designed with a 4-minute auto shutoff and should not be used on the same epidermis location if further use of the device is required.


The NEO should always be used with a single-use disposable plastic cover to protect from contamination and prevent spread of infection between patients.

CAUTION: These plastic covers are not sterile. They should be wiped with a germicidal wipe prior to use.

  1. Place the NEO inside a disposable cover ensuring the flap is located away from patient. Check to make sure cover is intact.
  2. Prior to use wipe cover with germicidal.
  3. After use, discard single use disposable cover.

The device is shipped with 50 covers. Additional covers can be ordered from TransLite or authorized dealers.
