[IPu] Disetronic Cartridges



Hi Lynette,

The catridges for the Disetronic HTRON you buy and manually fill.  With the
Disetronic DTRON, you have a choice.  If you use Humalog you should be able
to get prefilled cartridges which will fit the DTRON pump.  If you use
NovoRapid, you need to buy the cartridge and fill manually.  Disetronic sell
glass and plastic cartridges for the DTRON I believe.

I used a HTRON when I first started using a Pump.  But I needed a Pump with
additional features.  Only the DTRON and the Animas Pump provided these at
the time.  Because I could not get the DTRON here (in 2002) I bought Animas
Pumps into the country from the US.
Regards,

Janette
