Humalog® / Humulin® disposable pre-filled insulin injector – Eli Lilly
This pre-filled insulin pen set a new standard in reliability, accuracy, and ease of use. Skillful liaison between the engineering team and the production suppliers allowed part and process parameters to be optimized in single cavity pre-production tools, ensuring a robust transition to a production launch.
Commercially introduced in 1999, it was awarded a Medical Design Excellence Award in the Home Medical Equipment and Supplies and Self-Care Products category. Since that time, over 100 million pens have been produced (and it is still in production).
