[IPn] FLASH, I' have the press release for the new ANIMAS pump
I've just received the press release from Animas about their new pump
the R-1000. Now it's official, the pump has been approved for use in
the US. The highlights of the 7 page press release are:.
Animas received 501(k) clearance from the FDA to market the R1000
insulin pump on February 10, 2000. The pump will use infusion sets
manufactured by Maersk and are interchangeable with the
Disetronic/MiniMed infusion sets.
They expect approval in the EU countries in late 2000.
They have entered a distribution agreement with Insulin Infusion
Specialities to augment their direct sales force of 32 people.
