The following insulin devices have been discontinued: pre-filled disposable OptiSet, reusable OptiClik and reusable OptiPen Pro 1. In addition, Sanofi-aventis will no longer distribute the reusable Autopen 24. However, this pen will continue to be supplied by Owen Mumford and is compatible with ClikSTAR cartridges.
Patients using one of the discontinued pens can switch to using the available pens without the need to change their insulin as all the preparations will be available in the SoloSTAR and ClikSTAR range. Needles used with the older devices will continue to be compatible with the new pens.
Both the SoloSTAR and ClikSTAR allow users to select 1–80 units of insulin per dose, in 1 unit increments.
