NovoPen 5 3.0ml 1 unit (1-60 units) Insulin Pen (Blue)
Insulin pens are commonly used and are generally characterised by a different shape and the fact that they use an insulin cartridge as opposed to a vial.
They are portable and discreet, as well as not being as time-consuming as syringes. An accurate dose can be pre-set on the dosage dial, which can be useful for diabetes sufferers who also have impaired vision.
Novo Nordisk has launched NovoPen 5, a reusable insulin pen for use with the 3ml Penfill cartridge presentations of Insulatard, Levemir, NovoMix 30, NovoRapid and Tresiba. The pen has a built-in memory function recording last dose in units and time since last dose.
