  • Reason
    Animas has identified that in some pumps a component may become dislodged. should this occur it renders the force sensor detection system in the pump inoperative. the pump will stop delivering insulin and provide a warning to the patient. if the malfunction has led to a "no cartridge detected" or "loss of prime" situation, the pump also warns the user of this.
