Infusion sets contain thin plastic tubing that delivers insulin from the pump to your body. This tubing comes in different lengths to accommodate different needs. At the end of the tubing is either a soft, flexible cannula, which is a small, tapered tube, or a stainless steel needle. The cannula is inserted under your skin, in a spot such as your abdomen, thigh or buttocks. This spot is called your infusion site, and it remains in place for up to two or three days.


The Quick-set infusion set is our most popular infusion set. This 90°, soft cannula infusion set combines ease of use with maximum comfort. The Quick-serter® may be used to easily and comfortably insert the cannula under your skin.


The Silhouette infusion set is a variable angle, soft cannula infusion set. Ideal for those insulin pump users who are lean or live an active lifestyle, the Silhouette infusion set offers comfort and flexibility by allowing you to choose your insertion angle.


The Sure-T infusion set is a steel needle infusion set with an additional adhesive pad to provide extra security against needle dislodging. The Sure-T infusion set is intended for insulin pump users who prefer using a very fine 29g needle to infuse their insulin rather than a cannula.


The mio infusion set is an “all-in-one” design that combines the infusion set and insertion device into one unit. This 90°, soft cannula set is available in a variety of colors.
