BD launches needle aimed at diabetics

BD Ultra-Fine Nano designed for rapid, less painful insulin injections

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. — Becton, Dickinson and Co. has launched a needle that it said would make insulin injections easier and faster for people with diabetes.

BD subsidiary BD Medical announced Friday the BD Ultra-Fine Nano 4-millimeter pen needle. The needle includes technology called EasyFlow, designed to aid faster and more comfortable injections, and product demonstrations will take place at the American Diabetes Association's 73rd annual Scientific Sessions in Chicago, lasting through next Tuesday.

"Building on the introduction of BD's 4-millimeter needle and five-bevel PentaPoint Comfort design, we are confident that our new EasyFlow technology will provide the most comfortable injection experience to help enable patients to adhere more easily to their therapy regimens and ultimately improve their outcomes," BD Medical president for diabetes care Linda Tharby said.
