ARKRAY USA

MINNEAPOLIS, July 25, 2016 (PR NEWSWIRE) – ARKRAY USA, Inc., a leader in diabetes care products, announced today the launch of TechLITE Pen Needles. Pen needles are used with injection pen devices for the subcutaneous injection of insulin by those with insulin-dependent diabetes.

“The addition of the TechLITE Pen Needles to our family of diabetes products allows ARKRAY to further meet the needs of people with diabetes who require insulin injections,” said ARKRAY USA President Jonathan Chapman. “TechLITE Pen Needles are high quality, easy to use and provide reliably smooth and consistent insulin delivery at an affordable price.”

TechLITE Pen Needles combine thin-wall technology with precise lubrication techniques and pinpoint sharpening to provide a safe and precise insulin injection experience and are available in multiple gauges to meet individual needs.

Diabetes, or diabetes mellitus, is a metabolic type of disease in which affected people have high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate (Type 2), or because the islet cells in the pancreas no longer produce insulin (Type 1, sometimes referred to as juvenile diabetes). The ADA estimates that more than 30 million Americans suffer from either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes and that 25.9% of Americans 65 years of age or greater will have diabetes.
