MSA to Launch World’s First Mobile Diabetes Management System in Australasia

Medical Specialties Australasia (MSA) is able to announce that we have been awarded the exclusive distribution rights for the first mobile, connected, all-in one, Diabetes management system in Australasia. The system has been developed and is manufactured by independently owned company Cellnovo.

MSA was the first company to ever introduce insulin pump technology to the Australasian market when we launched the AutoSyringe Insulin Pump in 1983. Since then we have represented a handful of pump product lines including the Disetronic family, the Smiths Cozmo, as well as various glucose monitoring consumables.

MSA’s partnership with Cellnovo strongly represents our commitment to a ‘Gold Standard Only’ product portfolio approach. MSA Chief Executive Officer, MD, Patrick Gaynor said “This partnership with Cellnovo represents years of product analysis and ongoing communication between both companies, we feel the time is now right to launch in Australasia. MSA’s previous pump technology, the Smith’s Cozmo, was a patient favourite, and although was discontinued in 2008, we have exercised our option to wait for the leading, next generation technology in the diabetes pump space. We are confident the Cellnovo System represents this next step.” He went on to say “Cellnovo is currently participating in several artificial pancreas trials and we intend to introduce this technology to the Australasian market upon successful completion of those trials.”

The Cellnovo all-in one, Diabetes management system will be officially launched at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian Diabetes Society and the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADS-ADEA) in Perth, August 30 – September 1 2017
