Animas Global Statement:  Animas’ goal is to transition all patients to another insulin delivery system and to exit the market by September 2019

Animas Announcement: Medtronic Supports Continuity of Care

DATE POSTED: 17 JANAURY, 2018 – 5:30 PM

Animas Corporation has announced it will discontinue all sales of the company’s insulin pumps and associated products in Europe and will begin phasing out their operations to exit the market internationally.

Given Medtronic’s rich 30-year innovation and service history in Diabetes, Animas has identified Medtronic as the company’s partner-of-choice for the transition in Canada, USA, Germany and UK.

In Australia and New Zealand it is Medtronic Diabetes ANZ’s top priority to provide support to Animas customers to facilitate continuity of insulin pump therapy - whilst maintaining our commitment to addressing the therapy needs of existing Medtronic customers.
