Dr. Peng Qi’s team says its prototype of  an intelligent venipuncture blood collection robot solves three major pain points of venipuncture:

1. it automatically completes sterilization and puncture to avoid cross infection,

2. it has strong imaging ability, based on near-infrared and ultrasound image-guidance, and

3. it can automatically insert a needle into veins under the patient’s skin by an algorithm to determine the ideal angle and depth of injection, substituting for human “trial and error”
