Re: [IPk] Anyone who use the D-Tron


The whole D-TRON pump concept was designed around the Humalog 3ml cartridge,
not because Disetronic has an alliance with Lily, but simply because as a
company we approached Novo and Lily and Lily were the ones who came back
promptly.  We have had assurances on this basis, having spent huge amounts
of time and money in the research and development of the pump, that the
cartridge will not be changing or going away.  It would be pretty diasterous
to launch a new product and then find the cartirdges that accompany it are
extinct! :)

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
