SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 30, 2018--
Tandem Diabetes Care®, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a medical device company and
manufacturer of the only touchscreen insulin pumps, today announced
receipt of CE mark approval for the t:slim X2™ Insulin Pump with Dexcom
G5® Mobile continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) integration1.
The Company plans to begin commercial sales of the pump in select
international markets beginning in the second half of 2018. The Company
has been commercializing its touchscreen insulin pumps in the United
States since 2012, and received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
approval of the t:slim X2™ Insulin Pump with Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM
integration in August 2017.
The simple-to-use t:slim X2 Insulin Pump includes advanced features like
a large color touchscreen, rechargeable battery, USB connectivity and
watertight construction (IPX7)2. It is the only pump that
integrates with Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM, and the first CGM-enabled pump
approved to let users make treatment decisions without pricking their
finger.3 The t:slim X2 Pump is up to 38% smaller than other
insulin pumps and holds up to 300 units of insulin.4
“As our first product to receive CE mark, this milestone is key to the
fulfillment of our vision to bring the features and benefits of our
unique insulin pump technology to people outside of the United States,”
said Kim Blickenstaff, President and CEO of Tandem Diabetes Care. “Our
plans to launch the t:slim X2 Pump internationally in the second half of
this year is of particular strategic importance during this time where
insulin pump options are becoming increasingly limited."
