Medical device alert: Animas IR1200, IR1250 and 2020 insulin pumps
06 February 2013
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued an device alert for Animas insulin infusion pumps.
Animas have provided the following statement:
"The software included in the Animas 2020 insulin pump only operates until midnight on 31 December 2015. If a patient’s pump will be under warranty as of 31 December 2015, Animas will provide a free replacement of newer pump model prior to the end of 2015 to ensure pump therapy is not interrupted."
All Animas pump users are being contacted by letter from the manufacturer to inform them of the issue and a replacement pump will be offered nearer to the end of software date. (NB: the majority of these pumps will have been replaced before the software end date. Any out-of warranty pumps will be assessed on a case by case basis).
If you use an Animas 2020 pump and do not receive a letter you should contact the manufacturer on 0800 055 6606.
