Introducing the Animas Vibe!

Mark this date in history.  
IT HAS ARRIVED TO THE U.K.!!!!!
Animas Corporation is announcing today 
that they have received CE Mark approval for Animas Vibe.  


Animas® Vibe™ marks the first integrated product offering from Animas Corporation, makers of high-performance insulin pump technology and Dexcom, Inc., the leader in continuous glucose sensing technologies. Now approved in Europe, the product will initially be available to people living with diabetes in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Sweden.
Animas® Vibe™ offers:
  • The latest technology available from Dexcom – Dexcom G4™, a tiny, round and flexible sensor with the smallest introducer needle as compared to Abbott Freestyle Navigator® and Medtronic Sof-Sensor®
  • Advanced high-contrast colour pump screen technology, that displays glucose trends with coloured arrows and lines showing where and how fast glucose levels are shifting
  • Dexcom sensor technology approved for up to seven days of wear, delivering more days of CGM data than those approved for a shorter duration
  • Waterproof durability up to 12 feet (3.6 metres) for 24 hours for the insulin pump, with a Dexcom G4™ Transmitter that is waterproof at 8 feet (2.4 metres) for 24 hours
  • Customizable alarms to indicate high and low glucose levels including a hypo-safety alarm fixed at 55 mg/dL (3.1mmol/L)
  • Low basal increment (0.025 U/hr) across all available ranges (0.025 U/hr to 25.00 U/hr) for precise dosing
  • Compatibility with Diasend® communications software, enabling patients to store, review and print both CGM and insulin pump data

You can check out the entire press release HERE.

Welcome to the family, Vibe.
We can't wait for the chance to get to know you better here in the U.S. :)

  2. Big fans of Dex here, so I am waiting to get a look at the Vibe. Prefer Minimed pump so hoping to get a look at the Enlite. And extremely annoyed that because of the FDA we have to wait to do either. Love the color coding; love the waterproofness of the device. Notice the Animas/Dex transmitter itself looks a little larger than our current Dex, or is it my imagination? Small price to pay, but I wonder.

  5. Ok..I was really, REALLY excited until I found out there is no remote! GAH! I feel like a complainer but..I don't think I can give up the remote with an active kid who HATES having his pump touched:( Please Animas consider a Vibe with a remote..PLEASE!!!

  6. Ditto what Jen said! I can't lose my remote, even for the integration this would bring. I NEED both. Period.

    Thanks for sharing the info though!

  9. OK were at the end of August now and still don't have a date for the OK from the FDA. Are we stupid here in the US or are all of Europe in danger using this product, We know they're not in danger, we know the Dex works, we know the 2020 pump works so what is the problem (Red tape??????)

  10. I have had funding and consultants support regarding this and was supposed to get this over 3 weeks ago and then 12 hours prior to appointment Animas said they could NOT deliver as there was None in the country and did Not know when they would????? Disgusted with ANIMAS this is rubbish service

  11. our animas rep told us that the next pump they come out with (2014ish) is supposed to have integration and a remote, just in time for my pump warranty to run out! I mean should they actually get the pump done and approved in time.....
