ACCU-CHEK makes a ‘Spirited’ Entry Into the Pump Market

| Feb 28, 2007

On October 10, 2006, Roche Diagnostics announced the launch of the first ACCU-CHEK branded insulin pump—the ACCU-CHEK Spirit insulin pump system.

The ACCU-CHEK Spirit insulin pump system includes:

  • ACCU-CHEK Spirit insulin pump
  • ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software with bolus calculator on a Palm PDA or smartphone
  • Choice of ACCU-CHEK Aviva, ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus or ACCU-CHEK
  • Active blood glucose monitoring system
  • Choice of carrying case

“The availability of the ACCU-CHEK Spirit insulin pump system in the U.S. offers many flexible options people with diabetes are interested in using, including the selectable user menus that allow users to see the features they want to use,” said Sarah Hanssen, vice president and general manager for Disetronic Medical Systems. People new to pump therapy or those who prefer just basic functions can choose the Standard menu, whereas those who prefer more advanced features can choose from the Advanced or Custom menu options. The Advanced menu is the most comprehensive, while the Custom menu can be customized to meet individual user preferences.”

ACCU-CHEK insulin pump therapy systems and supplies, such as infusion sets, are marketed in the United States and Canada by Disetronic Medical Systems Inc. of Fishers, Ind. and can be found on the Internet at
