I called Disetronic about these cartridges. They gave me the NDC # and Product
# and I got them from the local pharmacy (Rite-Aid). I told them what
Disetronic told me...they probably won't be able to get them from their
supplier and will have to order them directly from Lilly.
By the way, the NDC# is 0002-7516-59, Product ID# VL-7516. Five cartridges
come in a package. They are 3 ml each...300 units. It also says, "For use in
Owen Mumford, Ltd.'s Autopen 3 mL insulin delivery device" on the package.
These cartridges are not all bubble-free. I got 10 cartridges...3 out of 1
pack had bubbles and 2 out of the other. However, they are probably less
bubbles than Carey would have if he tried to fill them himself. Guess we will
have to bolus these out?
Of course, we have the cartridges, but no pump yet!!<br clear=all><hr>Get your
