Animas Corporation To Close Operations And Exit Insulin Pump Market

Company will work with Medtronic as a partner-of-choice to help ensure a smooth transition for patients on insulin pumps Animas has selected Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT), a world leader in diabetes, as its partner-of-choice to facilitate a seamless transition for patients, caregivers and healthcare providers. Patients using an Animas insulin pump will be offered the option to transfer to a Medtronic pump. Patient safety and continuity of care is of utmost importance and Animas will continue to provide customer service, training and warranty support, including providing pump supplies that are used in conjunction with the Animas® Vibe® and OneTouch Ping® insulin pumps, through a transition period. “We recognize that patients living with diabetes rely on our products to provide critical care, and we want to reassure them that we will be with them every step of the way throughout this transition,” said Valerie Asbury, General Manager of Animas Corporation. “Our number one priority is ensuring patients have a seamless experience as they transition to Medtronic. For over 30 years, Medtronic has been a global leader in the treatment of those living with diabetes, and we are confident they will provide outstanding support to our patients and their healthcare teams.” “We are incredibly grateful to our patients and healthcare partners for the trust, confidence and loyalty they have placed in Animas products over the last 12 years,” Asbury said. “With changing needs of customers, rapidly evolving market dynamics, and increased competitive pressures, it proved too difficult to sustain the insulin pump business and we decided to pursue an exit of the business. This decision was extremely difficult and comes following the extensive exploration of all other viable option Continue reading >>

Is it a bad battery? Or is this something that will require a swap out (especially as we're heading out for a trip soon.) How soon are you leaving? Usually if there's a problem with your pump and it needs to be replaced, they overnight it, so that shouldn't be a problem. You could even ask them about a backup pump as well for your trip - it doesn't require anything more than faxing them a form. Always call. The error code gives them an idea of what occured. They may have you check the history or they may send you out a replacement. This happened to us once and when I phoned they said if it happened again they would replace the pump. The weird thing is that it did it almost exactly 24 hours after the first one... The rep at Animas told me that they won't replace the pump until it has three (non-major) errors. So, if it happens again tomorrow, they'll get a pump to us before we leave. (We live close enough to their factory to drive there, if need be.) Also, she directed me to the paperwork for the vacation loaner... so I'll be taking care of that tomorrow, when their office is open again. Our pump did this to us, not sure if it was the exact error code though. Called them they told us to see if it happened again, but before it did we were priming the tubing for a site/cartridge change and it started taking what it called 30 units to prime, normally it says 10 -12 units to prime, happened on the next site change, no error warning or anything. Called them and told them what was going on, our piston was going out! They sent us a replacement but I always wonder if that was the cause o Continue reading >>

Animas Vibe Insulin Pump Review

Animas Vibe Insulin Pump Review

Dear friends, welcome to advice4diabetes.com. By creating this web site I was inspired by my friends and my family who believe me, support and encourage in my journey. Without my friends, it will be impossible to create this website. “Man is what he believes” If you interesting find more about me, please follow me by clicking on icons below. Food database loaded in the insulin pump bolus menu in the Animas Vibe pump. I don’t like it. It’s Useless. The screen of the pump is small; it’s difficult for searching such large database of the food. The top button will assess to the main CGM screen. The function of this button is the awake pump with the screen that displays your blood sugar (CGM) or adjust the color contrast of the screen. The CGM (graphs) screen is useless and slow to redraw. 2nd the BEST part of the Animas Pump is the Swiss-made motor. Speed of delivery bolus is super fast, the motor delivery smallest basal dosage (0.025 U/hr) Only Animas pump has the motor that is delivery super-fast (1 U/ 1.1- 2.2 sec) and precise delivery, so far no insulin pumps on the market with the same design of the motor. The Animas Vibe, improve safety when you in the bolus screen and you are scrolling how many units to administrate, by pressing arrow up will displayed numbers of the unit calculate by the pump. I was using t: slim insulin pump for over a year, and I noticed my blood sugar doesn’t control well when I restarted on Animas Vibe my blood sugar control return to normal. Insulin on Board (IOB) calculation shows how much insulin is active from previous (correction/meal) bolus. Two important piece of information for pump’s algorithm to calculate IOB are time remaining for insulin (usually is 4 hours) and the amount of insulin administrated.

Emily Howitt: Animas One Touch Ping Review

Emily Howitt: Animas One Touch Ping Review

For those of you who don't know, the Animas One Touch Ping is an insulin pump. I think it's a pretty good insulin pump, but I've only had one insulin pump in my life, so who knows? Anyway, choosing an insulin pump is an important decision as it's going to be with you for the next five years, or however long your insurance company needs you to wait before getting another. In other words, you don't want to be stuck with an expensive piece of equipment you hate. That would just suck. But that's why I'm writing this review and you're reading it, so you can learn about the Animas One Touch Ping insulin pump to help you make an informed decision. The most important thing about a pump is how well it functions, but a lot of people including myself care about appearance. An insulin pump is going to be attached to 24/7. No matter how well it works, if you can't deal with what it looks like you're going to be unhappy. I think a pump needs to at least be neutral in that you don't like or dislike the style in order to wear it and not hate it. The Ping pump and the meter have a fairly nice appearance. The pump itself comes in five colours: green, blue, pink, grey, and black. While the meter only comes in grey. The material is also shiny which I think is an attractive quality. You can also by "skins" for the pump and meter which come in an array of colours and are made of silicone. Although I don't recommend one for the pump, depending on how you carry your pump. For instance, if you put it in a tight pocket I think the silicone will make it difficult to put the pump in the pocket as the silicone will pull against the material of your pants. However, it will help protect your pump so if you are prone to dropping things you may want to think about it. The screen on both the pump and t Continue reading >>

Re: [ip] One More Thing About Running On Empty...........

Re: [IP] one more thing about running on empty........... George Wrote: "I never leave the house without a vial of insulin. Well, actually it is in a Cartridge (some call them reservoirs) and I know how much insulin is in it every morning"andJanette Wrote:No Extra Insulin vial and syringe .. just an additional infusion and a BG Mtre.Ricardo Responds:Janette, your strategy would not have worked for me this very morning.When I got to work my Animas 1200 gave an "064-0001" code, No Delivery, Call Animas warning. I took the battery out twice to reboot the pump, then rewound, loaded and primed the cartridge. On both reboots, immediately after priming, a "no delivery, pump not primed" warning appeared. I re-primed several times wasting a lot of insulin and to no avail. I finally called Animas who diagnosed a faulty pump and will overnight a replacement.Although this happened within 5 minutes of my arrival at work, I was able to complete my work day with my backup system which consists of a single syringe. I disconnected the tubing from the cartridge, withdrew insulin from the cartridge at the luer lock fitting and gave myself injections at 3 - 4 hour intervals throughout the day. After a morning BG of 114 and a BG of 349 two hours after I started injecting, my BG ran at 68 - 123 the rest of the day.If all I had was an extra infusion set, I would not have been able to make it through the day since it assumes a working pump. My idea of a backup is a supply of insulin (which George points out we all carry in our reservoir/ cartridge) and an alternate method of insulin delivery (independent of the pump). To add to George's observation, the use of insulin in the reservoir as a backup assumes we don't live on the edge and let our cartridge run down to much less than half of your T Continue reading >>

Animas Corporation

Animas Corporation is an American company that specializes in making insulin pumps, used by people with diabetes. The company was founded by Dr. Katherine Crothall in 1996, had its initial public offering in May 2004 under the ticker symbol 'PUMP', and was ultimately acquired by Johnson & Johnson on February 18, 2006. The business is headquartered in West Chester, Pennsylvania and forms part of the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes franchise along with Lifescan and several other companies producing medical products for the treatment and management of diabetes. On October 5, 2017 Johnson & Johnson's Animas Corporation announced that they are closing down their operations in the insulin pump market and had sold their customer database to (“partnered with”) Medtronic [1]. Their press release: Johnson & Johnson's Animas Corp. said Thursday it plans to close operations and exit the insulin pump business. The company will discontinue the manufacturing and sale of its Animas, Vibe and OneTouch Ping insulin pumps. Animas said Medtronic PLC (mdt) will help facilitate a transition for the 90,000 patients who use Animas pumps, and who will be offered the option to transfer to a Medtronic pump. Animas employs 410 people around the world. The move comes as part of J&J's strategic review announced in January, in which it is continuing to evaluate options for LifeScan, a blood glucose monitoring company with the OneTouch brand of products. Animas 2020[edit] The Animas 2020 is an insulin pump that carries 200 units of insulin and can be connected to an infusion set following the Luer standard. Its predecessor was the Animas IR1250. The pump comes in five different colors, features a color screen and allows the user to have custom alarm tones. To improve treatment the system can save instr Continue reading >>

Animas Ping Problems

Animas Ping Problems

New Member T1 since 1980 on the pump since 1989 I have been on Mini Med pumps since the early 90's. I am an avid runner, hiker, biker kayaker, anything that requires motion. My HMO would only let me get an Animas Ping. I put it on yesterday afternoon, and ran for the first time this morning. An alarm kept going off. The message was that I had lost my prime. I called Animas support in the middle of my run. She said it would lose it's prime if it were less than 40 degrees, (not the case), or if the hub to the syringe wasn't screwed down, (not), or battery lock not screwed down, (not), or the bouncing from the run caused this failure as the reservoir is very sensitive to bumping. This will not be a good pump for me. I never had any problem like this from the Mini Med. The worst I would get was sweating the infusion site off. Any tips, any simular experiences? I can't believe this is acceptable performance for a pump. Diana New Member Lada/T1.5, Animas 2020, D since 1978. Diana, I have an Animas 2020 (ping without the meter) and mine has lost its prime twice in 4 months, for no apparent reason. I'd suspended for a quick shower, reattached and it happened then. I probably don't need to suspend for a shower, but I prefer to for several reasons. There are pump cases that prevent the pump from flopping around while running. Would that help? I guess it depends on where you're wearing it. There are plenty of athletes with Animas pumps. I think you just had bad luck. I suspect this won't happen all the time. For the sweating I use skin-tak the pads are ok but I like the liquid much better I sweat a lot when working out and this works for me . New Member Type 1 Parent of 2 type 1 children MY 2 daughters used mini meds first 4 yrs. Then switched to Animus. Nothing but problems now. Continue reading >>

Important Safety Information

Animas Vibe Insulin Pump and CGM System The Animas Vibe System consists of the Animas Vibe Insulin Pump paired with the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter. The Animas Vibe Insulin Pump is indicated for continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion for the management of insulin-requiring diabetes. It can be used solely for continuous insulin delivery and as part of the Animas Vibe System to receive and display continuous glucose measurements from the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter. The Animas Vibe Systems continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is indicated for detecting trends and tracking patterns in persons (age 2 and older) with diabetes, and is intended to complement, not replace, information obtained from standard home glucose monitoring devices. CGM aids in the detection of episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, facilitating both acute and long-term therapy adjustments, which may minimize these excursions. Interpretation of results from the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter should be based on the trends and patterns seen with several sequential readings over time.

Insulin Pump Hacking Risk In Animas Onetouch Ping? (don't Worry)

Insulin Pump Hacking Risk In Animas Onetouch Ping? (don't Worry)

News is swirling over fresh revelations that the Animas OneTouch Ping insulin pump is at risk for hacking, with the manufacturer issuing a reassuring letter to patients that includes tips about reducing the cybersecurity risk. On Tuesday Oct. 4, JnJ-owned Animas issued a cybersecurity alert to users of the OneTouch Ping, which has been available since 2008 and communicates with a glucose meter for remote bolusing. JnJ says it discovered a potential flaw based on a tip from well-known cybersecurity expert Jay Radcliffe, who lives with T1D and made a name for himself by exposing hacking risks in Medtronic pumps several years ago. He contacted the company in April to say he'd discovered a way for someone to potentially gain unauthorized access to the pump through its unencrypted radio frequency communication system. They've collectively been exploring the issue since, have notified the FDA and Department of Homeland Security, and now six months later, are ready to reveal the issue publicly with specifics on how to combat it. Of course, mainstream media picked up on the story quickly, though not quite to the level of frenzy we've seen in the past. Medical device hacking always makes for juicy news, and has been a plot line in popular TV shows like The Blacklist a few years ago. In this case, Animas says the risk is extremely low and that no evidence exists of anyone actually hacking into the device. Instead, this is a "zero day" event in which the company is compelled to expose the vulnerability for transparency on the potential risk, and offer fixes. To be clear, we at the 'Mine don't think this is particularly threatening. Honestly, we're more likely to see a Samsung Note 7 phone battery explode nearby than see someone hack into an insulin pump to do harm. But nevertheles Continue reading >>

Animas Vibe - Pump Is Not Primed

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community I've been getting this several times a day. What is likely to be causing it, and what should I do? Just keep changing the infusion set and insulin reservoir? I had some vague recollections and did a google. If you google' animas pump not primed error' you get a lot of results, admittedly most don't seem to recent. There was in fact a recall back in 2011 though the issue was said to have been resolved. I think that if I were you, I would contact the company. It may be something to do with what you do, or the pump; either way they should be able to help Yes I would phone Animas as sounds like you have a faulty pump Phone animas and tell them you have wasted x amount of sets due to this so would they be kind enough to replace them. Re RTFM, I did, the manual is useless on this. "Cause: pump not primed." Really? And the troubleshooting guide for the pump per se is one page. Doesn't include anything about this Warning. Just in case the pump is actually working, I need to wait 4 hours before I use a pen to correct the BG of 18-24 that I have been trying to correct with the pump for two days. Which is a shame since I feel like passing out. @Spiker dual correct. Assume the pump is giving some and then do smaller correction with pen in addition. 18-24 is far too high I had an issue with this previously. Turned out to be an issue with the vials I spoke to Animas Tech Support. This is what they said. They acknowledged that as this stops insulin delivery it should be classed as Alarm not Warning. Or at least it should be recorded in the pump History (it isn't; Warnings aren't). It can be caused by a bad cartridge that doesn't move smoothly. (If the pump also asks Continue reading >>

Reviewing Wireless Technology: The Onetouch Ping System

Reviewing Wireless Technology: The Onetouch Ping System

Written by Amy Tenderich on October 22, 2008 God knows I'm excited about diabetes devices going wireless. So I've been keeping my eye on the new OneTouch Ping system , a combination of the Animas 2020 insulin pump and a OneTouch glucose meter that talk to each other wirelessly. This means you can actually control the pump right from the glucose meter setting basal rates and bolus insulin doses without ever having to "pull the pump off your hip." It's not as completely untethered as the OmniPod , mind you, because you're still wearing a traditional insulin pump with plastic tubing. But the Ping still takes a big step forward in terms of convenience and a more "discreet" way to live with diabetes (i.e. you can hide your pump better). Since I wasn't about to change my pumping system just for a product review, I asked Animas to put me in touch with someone using the system, to hear how they feel about it in real life. Naturally, the woman they referred me to was quite enthusiastic. But she was no "plant," either. She's a lifelong Type 1 who kind of put me to shame with her disciplined approach to her diabetes management (she downloads her data every week and keeps extra meters "all over the place" good idea!) So allow me to introduce you to Jeanette Szwelnis, 29, a supervisor of collections at the Central Blood Bank in North Huntington, PA, a suburb of Pittsburgh. (I can't believe she works with blood!) Jeanette is getting married this Saturday, Oct. 25, so special thanks for taking the time to talk with me, and CONGRATS, Jeanette! "I've had diabetes for 26 years. I was diagnosed at age three and a half. I've been on a pump for about 8 years now. I started out with Minimed, and then upgraded to the Animas 1250. It was upgrade time again, and I was looking at new pumps. I w Continue reading >>
