PicoSulin is the result of several years of research and development in the field of micro liquid delivery. The simplicity of the system is based on the use of a plastic micro pump which is connected to an ultra precise mechanical system (patent pending) capable of delivering a bolus of 25nl (0.0025U) that is 10 times more precise than any other pump on the market which delivers 250nl (0.025U). It uses a standard AAA battery.
What’s more, the micro pump uses a volumetric pump mechanism capable of aspirating the insulin directly from prefilled cartridge.
Performance aside, it has the major advantages of its very small size and modular design: the “Picopump” is a portable pump weighing just 2 oz (60 grams), loaded with a PenFill cartridge of 3ml of insulin, 50% smaller than the smallest pump on the market.
