Re: [IPk] Minimeds new pump



Hello ,
Thanks for your interest in the new Minimed paradigm pump .
This pump will be launched in the USA late this year but will not be launched into Europe until end 2002 as European regulatory issues still need to be addressed .
We are now finalising the FDA approval and then require CE mark approval inorder to import into Europe . 

Unfortunately we will not be able to offer a free upgrade programme in Europe .
The main reason being that a pump costs #3,900 to buy in the US and approx. #2,180 in the UK .
Uk pump and catheter prices are amongst the lowest internationally and therefore we can't afford free upgrade programmes .... sorry !

We will keep you informed and issues product details as we approach the launch date for the paradigm .

Best wishes
Morag
Director Minimed
