Introducing PIVO

Inpatient blood draws are among the most frequent hospital procedures and critical to delivering informed and comprehensive care. They are a complex and invasive procedure, with high degrees of variability and proficiency across clinical settings and between practitioners. The impact on patient experience is significant – especially for ‘frequent flyers’ and tough stick, difficult access patients. PIVO aims to democratize the inpatient blood draw, while making a seamless, stress-free experience for patients, their loved ones and practitioners a reality.

Experience the Difference

PIVO is a revolutionary solution to age-old challenges with needle sticks and line draws. High quality lab draws from indwelling peripheral IV lines are finally possible.

  Reducing Pain

Patient experience is positively impacted through reduced instances of pain, bruising, and the downward spiral associated with repeat needle sticks during hospitalization.

  Engineered for Safety

Designed with healthcare practitioners in mind, PIVO is needle-free.


Delivers accurate samples for timely diagnosis – the first time.


Elegantly employing existing IV lines to access the vein.

“Our aim is to enable more compassionate care for patients, a safer workplace for practitioners, and more efficient blood draw practices for hospitals. Our work is about all people.”
