Insulet acquires CE mark for integration of insulin pump with Abbott CGM

Insulet has secured a CE mark for integrating its Omnipod 5 insulin pump with Abbott’s Freestyle Libre 2 Plus continuous glucose monitor (CGM) sensor. This clearance positions Insulet to launch the integrated Type 1 diabetes solution in Europe in the first half of 2024, starting with phased releases in the UK and Netherlands. Both companies have highlighted the potential of insulin pump-CGM integration, seeing significant market opportunities.

The Omnipod 5 is a tubeless, wearable insulin pump offering an alternative to multiple daily injections. By integrating the pump with CGMs, Insulet has developed automated insulin delivery systems adjusting dosages based on real-time blood glucose levels, with updates every five minutes.
