BEDFORD, Mass., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Insulet Corporation (Nasdaq: PODD), a leader in wearable insulin pump technology with its OmniPod(R) Insulin Management System, today announced an agreement with Ferring Pharmaceuticals, of Saint Prex, Switzerland, to develop the OmniPod System for the delivery of a Ferring drug. This is Insulet's first development agreement for a non-diabetes drug delivery application.

Under the terms of the agreement with Ferring, Ferring will fund development of a custom version of the OmniPod's Personal Diabetes Manager and, upon completion of the development, will agree to purchase minimum quantities of the OmniPod Systems over a five year period, beginning in 2009.
