Date:7/15/2009

VANCOUVER, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Animas Corporation announced today the approval of its OneTouch((R)) Ping(TM) Glucose Management System by Health Canada. OneTouch Ping is the first full-feature insulin pump that wirelessly communicates with a blood glucose meter-remote.

"OneTouch Ping provides patients with unique capabilities designed to make life with diabetes easier and more discreet. A combination of the advanced insulin pump technology from Animas and trusted OneTouch blood glucose monitor technology, the OneTouch Ping frees people living with diabetes from multiple daily injections, while offering discretion and convenience through remote insulin dosing," said Henry Anhalt, D.O., Director of Medical Affairs, Animas Corporation.

The OneTouch Ping system will also work with the ezManager((R)) MAX Diabetes Management Software designed to allow users to download important diabetes management data from the insulin pump and meter-remote. Integrated blood glucose data from the meter-remote and insulin dosing data may be downloaded for review, analysis and evaluation of insulin delivery and blood glucose history to better inform healthcare decision-making. The ezManager((R)) MAX software is MAC and PC compatible.
