Simplify the steps required to inject U-500 insulin by using the BD™ U-500 insulin syringe. Designed to help patients safely take Humulin® R U-500 insulin.1,2
The BD U-500 insulin syringe is designed with the BD Ultra-Fine™ 6mm needle to specifically support patients taking Humulin* R U-500 insulin. The BD U-500 insulin syringe is designed to help patients inject the correct dose by reducing the steps necessary to draw up and inject U-500 insulin.
Bold scale markings
Bold scale markings in five-unit increments let you easily draw insulin to the prescribed dose, allowing up to 250 units.
Shortest syringe needle by BD
The 6-mm x 31-G needle is the shortest insulin syringe needle length currently available from BD.
Reduced number of dosing steps
The syringe is designed to reduce the number of dosing steps required to manually convert doses using a U-100 insulin syringe or a tuberculin (volumetric) syringe, helping to reduce dosing errors.
Consistency of care
To ensure consistency of care, the price of the BD U-500 insulin syringe aligns with that of the BD U-100 insulin syringe with 6-mm needle length.
BD Medical – Diabetes Care has partnered with managed care organizations to ensure that the BD U-500 insulin syringe is covered by most healthcare plans, including Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D), at the preferred copay, mirroring the coverage of our other BD Ultra-Fine insulin syringes.†
The insulin syringe package and components are aligned with the new Humulin R U-500 insulin green and gray packaging color scheme; the syringe plunger is gray, the syringe shield is green and "U-500" is printed on the syringe collar in green.
The insulin syringe―NDC 08290-3267-30―is easy to find at the pharmacy.
