CleoTM 90 Infusion Set from Smiths Medical Gains FDA Clearance
St. Paul, MN, October 18, 2004 - Smiths Medical MD, Inc. announced today it has received 510(k) Pre-market Notification market clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its new subcutaneous infusion set product, the CleoTM 90 infusion set. Infusion sets are a key element of an insulin pump system, delivering insulin in a flow path connection between the pump and its wearer.
The all-in-one design of the CleoTM 90 infusion set features an automatic needle retraction system to reduce unwanted needlesticks, a skin-like adhesive dressing that breathes yet keeps water out, and a hidden insertion needle aiding insertions with small children and those with needle-phobia. The 360 degree site connectivity option provides total tubing direction control, allowing users to wear what they want, when they want. The CleoTM 90 infusion set is planned for release to customers in the spring of 2005.
