Burgdorf – Ypsomed has been the exclusive distributor for the mylife™ OmniPod® patch pump outside the USA since 2010. During this period, Ypsomed established therapy with the innovative insulin pump in Europe, gaining market shares of up to 20% in part. The distribution agreement with Insulet Corp. will end as per 30 June 2018. The parties could not agree on extending the contract as the price demanded by Insulet Corp. would have made continued economic viability impossible. Ypsomed is well set for the future and will introduce its own tubeless mylife™ YpsoPod® insulin pump in the mid-term.
