Re: [IPu] (Fwd) FW: Disetronic cartridges and infusion sets on Governmen

Keep watching this space re infusion sets, any comments I hear (and the rest
of you) I will be happy to see broadcast. Anything which helps to cut costs
is worth while and the Disetronic Tender works on both pumps.
Re Disetronic  Cartridges the H-Tron uses glass ones which you fill, the
D-Tron Plus uses the pre-filled Lilly 3 ml cartridge used in pens or a glass
cartridge which you have to fill.
