New 70/30 Insulin Mix Available in Disposable Pen


Dec 1, 2002

Novo Nordisk Launches Product in the United States

Novo Nordisk has introduced its NovoLog Mix 70/30, which consists of 70 percent insulin aspart with protamine crystals to slow down absorption and 30 percent NovoLog (insulin aspart).

NovoLog Mix 70/30 is typically injected before breakfast and before dinner.

The mix, now available throughout the United States, comes in a prefilled, disposable pen made of plastic. The NovoLog Mix 70/30 FlexPen is part of a new generation of such insulin pens that are designed for discreet use.

The FlexPen is about 6 inches long, weighs less than 1 ounce, and features a single-step dose-setting mechanism and a "nonmedical" appearance. It delivers insulin in 1-unit increments up to 60 units per injection and automatically returns to zero after the injection.
