In the medical field, venipuncture is a term that is defined as the procedural skill of puncturing a vein with a needle, typically for the purpose of withdrawing a specimen of blood for testing and diagnostic reasons. Phlebotomy technicians, also known as phlebotomists and blood collectors, are allied healthcare workers who perform venipuncture procedures and utilize micro collection techniques on a regular basis to withdraw blood from patients.
