Tandem Diabetes Care announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared t:flex Insulin Pump, the largest capacity insulin pump currently available.

The t:flex Insulin Pump, at 480 units, is designed for patients who require more than 100 units of U-100 insulin daily such as teenagers with type 1 diabetes and many with type 2 diabetes. The large capacity does not require frequent reservoir changes seen with 200- and 300-unit capacity pumps. Like the Company’s t:slim Insulin Pump, the t:flex uses the same slim design with a touch-screen interface, and incorporates advanced Micro-Delivery technology.
