Abbott (NYSE:ABT) and Tandem Diabetes Care (NSDQ:TNDM) announced today that they have completed their agreement to combine the former’s glucose-sensing technology with the latter’s insulin delivery systems.
The deal, announced in October, will combine Abbott’s Freestyle Libre CGM with Tandem’s t:slim X2 pump to monitor glucose without fingersticks. The agreement covers the technical development of device integration and associated commercial support activities.
“We’re excited to integrate our insulin delivery systems with Abbott’s glucose-sensing technology, and we look forward to expanding options for our customers so that they can combine devices that best suit their personal needs,” said Tandem president & CEO John Sheridan in a news release. “We are proud to have an insulin pump capable of remote software updates that can make access to future integrations possible for in-warranty t:slim X2 users at the time of release without requiring a new pump.”
