Hello. Meet the Animas® Vibe™ & Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM system*.

It's here to help you perform at your best.

Our CGM-enabled Animas® Vibe insulin pump combines high-performance pumping with state-of-the-art sensing. It's designed to streamline the whole CGM (continuous glucose monitoring) experience for you, while giving you a continuous, accurate view of how your glucose is behaving. Here's how.

We’re now fully integrated with Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM system.

+

We like to fine-tune insulin to you.

We deliver a small basal increment (0.025 U/hr) across all the available basal rates (0.025 U/hr to 25 U/hr), to precisely meet your changing needs.

+

We’ve got basal profiles that are personalised.

Up to four different basal rate profiles can be programmed for different insulin needs.

+

We’ve got precise bolus dosing.

Our low bolus increment (0.05 U) helps precisely match insulin with food intake and corrects high blood sugar readings. Our pumps can: > Calculate a bolus amount to cover the carbs in food (ezCarb) > Automatically calculate a correction dose of insulin based on the latest blood sugar reading (ezBG)

+

We keep our eye on the insulin that’s active.

Our “Insulin on Board” feature tracks the insulin still active in your body to help prevent hypoglycaemia due to “stacking” (making additional insulin unnecessarily).

+

We know you have better things to do than change a battery.

When used with a lithium battery,† Animas® Vibe™ Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM-enabled insulin pump lasts for up to 3 weeks.

+

We have a bolus for every appetite.

Know your bolus?
Our normal bolus lets insulin pump users calculate the insulin and deliver it all at once.
Eating a high-fat meal, which is absorbed more slowly, or "grazing?"
Our combo bolus lets insulin pump users calculate the amount and split it, so some is delivered right away (normal bolus) and the rest over time (extended bolus).

+

We think an insulin pump that’s waterproof just makes sense.

Unlike other insulin pumps, ours are tested and proven waterproof‡ at 3.6 metres for up to 24 hours. So you get uninterrupted insulin delivery while swimming or taking a bath, and peace of mind when there’s unexpected contact with water.

+

We’d never get in between you and your infusion set.

Our insulin pumps are compatible with all insulin infusion sets using standard Luer lock connectors, so you are free to find the one that fits you best. inset® II and inset® 30 are two great options.

*Calibration must be taken at least once every 12 hours.

+

It shows you your glucose in full-on, colour-coded action.

Animas® Vibe™ insulin pump is the first and only Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM-enabled insulin pump to have a high-contrast colour screen. It delivers rich information, too. Coloured trend arrows and lines show where your glucose is heading and how fast, so you can consider this information, along with the results of fingerstick testing, to help guide therapy adjustments.§

+

It’s got up to a week’s worth of convenience built right in.

The Animas® Vibe™ insulin pump is the only Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM-enabled pump that works with a sensor approved for up to 7 days of wear.

+

When it comes to insertion, small is in.

The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor introducer needle is the smallest available in comparison to Medtronic Enlite® and Abbott FreeStyle Navigator.®||

+

It’s got simplified calibration rules.

Twice-daily calibration aligns your fingerstick reading with your CGM system so the values correspond. The Animas® Vibe™ Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM-enabled insulin pump lets you calibrate when it’s convenient, as long as your glucose reading is between 2.2 mmol/L and 22.2 mmol/L.¶

+

It’s tuned into you.

You can’t always feel symptoms when you’re going high or going low, but our customisable high and low alerts let you know. We also have a built-in, non-adjustable hypo safety alert set at 3.1 mmol/L for extra peace of mind.

+

Accuracy is practically its middle name.

The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor has excellent overall accuracy.#

+

It gives you Diasend®—for the bigger CGM picture.**

Diasend® lets you upload your Animas® Vibe™ Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM-enabled insulin pump and meter data.†† It stores this information on the secure Diasend® web site and also sorts it into charts and graphs, so you can review how you’re doing and share it with your healthcare professional, even between appointments.‡‡

†Energizer L91 lithium battery.
‡The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM Transmitter is waterproof up to 24 hours at 2.4 metres. CGM readings may not be displayed when in water. §You must confirm your glucose reading with a fingerstick test before taking action.
||Measured as the cross-sectional area of the introducer needle.
¶Calibration must be taken at least every 12 hours.
#Sixty patients were followed for 7 days while wearing the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM CGM Sensor. The sensor was calibrated after the first hour and then approximately every 12 hours thereafter using manual entry self-monitoring of blood glucose from a OneTouch® Ultra®2 Meter.
**Diasend® works with most meters. To view the list of meters that are supported by Diasend®, please visit the Diasend® website www.diasend.com.
††You’ll need to install the Diasend® Uploader in order to upload your data to your Diasend® account.
‡‡Diasend® is compatible with PCs running Microsoft® Vista®, Microsoft® Windows® XP, Windows® 7 and Apple computers running MAC OS® 10.5.7 or later.
