New Insulin Pen “Open” to All Insulin Types

| Jun 1, 1999

A new insulin pen is available, and it is "open" to using any kind of insulin. From Disetronic, this pen is not prefilled, but you fill it yourself with whatever type of insulin you use. Disetronic is calling the open pen economical, because it can be reused and insulin purchased in vial form is the least expensive.

Like other pens, the open pen has a dial, to dole out the correct number of insulin units for each shot, at one-unit intervals. It comes with a 12-mm., 30-gauge needle, and Disetronic says it is considering bringing out a model with an 8-mm. needle.

The suggested retail price is $95. To learn details, contact Disetronic at (800) 280-7801 or on the Web at
