The Insul-Cap is a small, plastic cover that fits over the top of an insulin vial. The syringe is held in place firmly by the Insulcap, making it easier to draw insulin into a syringe. The orange cap has bumps around the base, called guides, while the blue cap doesn't. The bumbs on the one guide help those with visual impairments distinguish between two different kinds of insulin.
In testing, the Insul-Cap worked as advertised with B-D 30 unit UltraFine syringes. The most recent version also works with the UltraFine II syringes with the shorter needle.
The suggested retail price for the box of two Insul-Cap (one orange, one blue) is US$7.95. The Insul-Cap should last through several vials of insulin. Be sure to wash the Insul-Cap between vials.
