Tandem Diabetes Care (NSDQ:TNDM) said today that it launched the t:lock Connector for its insulin pump cartridges and infusion sets.
The connector, which is produced and supplied by Unomedical, has a small inner cavity. San Diego-based Tandem said this feature reduces the amount of insulin used while filling an infusion set and lessens the time required to fill the infusion set tubing.
““This launch strengthens our overall insulin delivery systems, addressing one of our customers’ most frequent requests to make the infusion set fill process more efficient,” president & CEO Kim Blickenstaff said in prepared remarks. “We continue to invest in ways to improve our products and deliver new technology, as part of our overall mission to provide innovative solutions to help improve the lives of people with diabetes.”
“We are excited to further our current partnership with Tandem Diabetes Care with the implementation of their optimized t:lock Connector,” John Lindskog, president of ConvaTec Infusion Devices, added. “The available t:lock line of infusion sets offers a variety of solutions for their customers, and we look forward to working with Tandem to further expand their offerings in the future.”
Unomedical, a ConvaTec company, also manufactures infusion sets of other major insulin pump manufacturers, Tandem said.
The t:lock versions of Tandem’s infusion sets will be rolled out to customers and distributors beginning on Sept. 5 and will be fully transitioned by the end of this year, according to the company.
