There is now a New Generation of Medtronic’s Enlite sensor and now you can get them as a single unit, instead of a pack of five. This generation now features increased comfort with improved adhesive to reduce the likelihood of skin irritation. Also, the tubing around the sensor electrode has been removed, reducing the implanted volume by 80% (there’s just less of it in your body) and reducing the possibilities of the sensor kinking or bending. The sensor electrode design has been modified, the aim being a more consistent performance throughout the life of the sensor and the connection between the sensor and transmitter has been improved to help reduce the likelihood of data gaps.
The product codes to order the New Generation Enlite sensor remain exactly the same as the existing Enlite sensors. Single unit sensors are being made available so that more people have the chance to access to CGM and, with qualifying Medtronic pumps, the Low Glucose Suspend feature. Single unit pack: MMT-7008B; 5 pack: MMT-7008A; 10 pack: BNENSENS10PK1001.
