About NovoTwist(TM)

NovoTwist(TM) comes in 5 mm (32G Tip) and 8 mm (30G), and its novel bayonet fitting allows the user to twist the needle onto FlexPen(R). An audible and tactile 'click' confirms attachment of the needle. An integral glue tower minimises the risk of needle breakage, and short, thin needles ensure safe insulin deposition and reduce injection pain and bruising.(7-11)
