Animas Corporation receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for its diabetes management
software system

Frazer, PA - June 19, 2003 - Animas Corporation, a manufacturer of insulin
infusion pumps and other products for patients with insulin-requiring
diabetes, announced today that it has received US Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance to market ezManager Plus.

ezManager Plus, the first software system of its kind to receive FDA 510(k)
clearance, differs from other available systems with its comprehensive food
database, carbohydrate calculator, and ability to accept download
information from both the Animas IR 1000 insulin pump and a variety of blood
glucose meters.

This software system, with both a Palm-OS and desktop module, is designed to
help people better manage their diabetes and help reduce the time healthcare
professionals need to spend helping patients manage diabetes. With this
intuitive program, patients can:

    a.. Access a database of more than 3,000 different foods, including fast
food restaurants and customized favorites,
    b.. Record daily activity on a personal digital assistant (PDA),
    c.. Automatically calculate insulin needs for carbohydrate intake and
blood glucose readings,
    d.. Download and electronically send insulin pump history, blood glucose
meter and PDA records, and
    e.. Do trending analysis and obtain other statistical analysis.
Commenting on the FDA clearance, Dr. Katherine Crothall, Animas' CEO said,
"Managing diabetes properly is very time-intensive for patients and their
healthcare teams. Patients need to adjust their insulin intake based upon
the carbohydrate content of their meal and current blood glucose readings,
necessitating patients thumbing through food databases and performing
multi-step computations. Many patients simply make wild guesses. ezManager
Plus removes much of the guesswork and significantly simplifies the
time-intensive computations.

"We are also committed to developing tools that reduce the strain on the
already over-burdened healthcare system. The reports available from
ezManager Plus give patients and the healthcare team a comprehensive view of
important parameters of diabetes management and allow healthcare
professionals to focus more efficiently on developing treatment plans for
their patients," Dr. Crothall explains.
