The Animas corporation announced that Animas Vibe, the first and only continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)-enabled insulin pump system with Dexcom G4™ CGM technology, received the CE Mark of approval. The Animas® Vibe combines the features of an Animas insulin pump with the convenience of Dexcom CGM, which is the only sensor approved for up to seven days of wear.
As a CGM-enabled system, the Animas Vibe insulin pump functions as a receiver for the Dexcom G4 Sensor. The system delivers real-time glucose information, alerts for high and low readings, and glucose trend information, enabling patients to make more informed decisions to help control their disease. The new system offers a color display and is waterproof.
Now approved in Europe, the Animas Vibe will initially be available to people living with diabetes in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Sweden.
