The Latest Novo Nordisk Reusable Insulin Pen

novopen

NovoPen Echo® is the first and only insulin pen that provides both precise half-unit dosing and a memory function that records the dose and time passed since the last injection.

NovoPen Echo® has a memory function that records the date and time since the last injection for extra reassurance. It can remind busy teens, parents, and caregivers—or adults—on the go when and how much their last dose was. Plus, you can pick from a variety of fun skins. There’s even a fun and informative NovoPen Echo® Memory Game! Find out more about it below.

Accurate at every dose

In a study, NovoPen Echo® was shown to be accurate and sturdy, standing up to real-world wear and tear and still accurate at every dose. Watch this video to see some of the features that make NovoPen Echo® a great choice for kids and teens, and even adults.

What about NovoPen® Junior?

NovoPen Echo® is replacing NovoPen® Junior, which—like NovoPen® 3 and PenMate®—will no longer be available at the pharmacy. However, you can continue to use your NovoPen® Junior, NovoPen® 3, and PenMate®. If you have any questions about the discontinuation of these products, please call 1-800-727-6500. Ask your doctor about NovoPen Echo® and how it can help you (or your loved one) reach your diabetes goals.
