Deltec's New CozMore(TM) Insulin Technology System Revolutionizes Diabetes
Treatment  First-ever, All-in-One Insulin Pump and Blood Glucose Meter Makes
 Diabetes Easier Than Ever

ST. PAUL, Minn., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Deltec introduces the CozMore(TM)
Insulin Technology System, the first all-in-one smart insulin pump and blood
glucose monitoring system that helps people with diabetes take charge of
their daily diabetes management.  The system was introduced at the American
Diabetes Association's 63rd Scientific Sessions, June 13-17, New Orleans

The CozMore(TM) Insulin Technology System is a collaborative effort
between Deltec, creator of the Deltec Cozmo(TM) Personal Insulin Pump, and
TheraSense, manufacturer of the FreeStyle(R) Blood Glucose Monitoring
System. As the
first  and only all-in-one insulin pump and blood glucose monitor, the
Insulin Technology System gives users "real-time" glucose data and insulin
delivery options in one place for quick and easy access.

"The CozMore(TM) Insulin Technology System blends two state-of-the-art
products -- The Deltec Cozmo(TM) insulin pump, the premier choice among
insulin pump users, and the FreeStyle(R) blood glucose monitoring system, a
painless glucose testing alternative -- to create a revolution in diabetes
management," said Rod Kellogg, vice president and general manager,
Deltec.  "This merging of great products and the resulting innovative
technology promises
to lighten the cumbersome routine people with diabetes go through on a daily

By combining premier insulin pump and blood glucose testing technology,
Deltec and TheraSense have made diabetes management a more portable,
hassle- free routine for more than 255,000 insulin pump users in the U.S.
"As a leader
in blood glucose monitoring technology, we're constantly looking for ways to
eliminate barriers to better diabetes management and improve the quality
of  life for people with diabetes," said Mark Lortz, president and CEO,
"With the help of FreeStyle's Nano-sample(TM) technology and our advances
in test accuracy, we believe the CozMore(TM) Insulin Technology System can
significantly change the way that people manage their diabetes on a daily

CozMore(TM) System components include:

Deltec Cozmo(TM) Personal Insulin Pump -- an insulin pump with advanced
technology and easy-to-use features that helps people with diabetes more
accurately regulate their insulin usage, increasing their health and quality
of life. CoZmonitor(TM) Blood Glucose Monitoring System -- a virtually
blood glucose monitoring system powered by TheraSense FreeStyle(R)
technology, which gives users accurate and precise blood glucose results with
a 0.3
microliter sample -- a blood drop about the size of a pinhead.
CoZmanager(TM) PC Communications System -- a complete software program
that  links the CozMore(TM) System with a computer, allowing users to
personalize the system to their lifestyle, as well as track and review
histories on more than 2,000 system "events."

How the CozMore(TM) System works:

The CozMore(TM) System is both lightweight and easy to use.  First, users
lance their fingertip or a less painful, alternate testing site (the
forearm,  upper arm, thigh, calf or fleshy part of the hand) with a
FreeStyle(R) Lancing device.  Next, they insert the FreeStyle(R) Test Strip
into the
CoZmonitor(TM) System, which is attached to the Deltec Cozmo(TM) Insulin

The CoZmonitor(TM) System automatically transfers the blood glucose
 information to the Deltec Cozmo(TM) Pump through an infrared port. If the
user's blood glucose level is higher than normal, he or she can go directly
to the bolus  menu to correct it without having to manually re-enter the
glucose value, ensuring more consistent insulin delivery.

In addition, blood glucose results are combined with insulin delivery data
and stored in the Deltec Cozmo(TM) Insulin Pump's history log to provide a
complete picture of the user's diabetes management, allowing them to be
more proactive in their insulin decisions.  The system's central data
storage capabilities also allow users to go through fewer steps and therapy
calculations -- reducing the risk of data or transcription errors.

Because insulin pump therapy requires more frequent blood glucose testing,
it's not unusual for a typical user to check his or her glucose levels six
to eight times a day or more.  The CozMore(TM) System's small, compact size
makes it easier for pump users to carry everything necessary to manage their
diabetes, eliminating the need for them to store and/or carry around
multiple blood glucose meters.

 Deltec has submitted a 510(k) application to the FDA for clearance, and
the first CozMore(TM) System units are expected to be available after
