An infusion set includes the thin plastic tubing that delivers insulin from the pump to the body. This tubing comes in different lengths to accommodate various needs. At the end of the tubing is either a soft, flexible cannula, or a stainless steel needle. The cannula, which is a small, tapered tube, is inserted under the skin in a spot such as the abdomen, thigh or buttocks. This spot is called the infusion site, and the infusion set remains in place for up to 2-3 days for most set types, and up to 7 days for the Extended infusion set.
Twice the wear time1
Designed with new materials to allow up to twice the wear time due to:
The new tubing and connector improve stability of insulin2, increase the reliability of the infusion site performance3 and reduce the risk of infusion set occlusion2
The newly developed adhesive patch has an adhesive layer that extends wear time* and provides comfort and durability for up to seven days4
Easier, faster, hassle-free5
This infusion set has a 90°, soft cannula and can be inserted with only 4 steps. The all-in-one insertion design means that no separate serter is needed.
Offering a more secure connection
The MiniMed™ Sure-T™ infusion set is a very fine 29-gauge needle and is intended for insulin pump users who prefer using a metal needle to infuse their insulin rather than a plastic cannula.
This steel needle infusion set has an extra adhesive pad for a more secure connection. The simplicity and enhanced security of MiniMed™ Sure-T™ infusion set make it a good choice for infants, children, and adults. It comes in 3 tubing lengths and 3 cannula lengths. The 6mm cannula is available in 18", 23", and 32" lengths; the 8mm cannula is available in 23" and 32" lengths; and the 10mm cannula is available in 32" length tubing.
Discreet, low-profile design
The MiniMed™ Silhouette™ infusion set is a soft cannula infusion set that can be inserted at a variety of angles. Ideal for those insulin pump users who are lean or live an active lifestyle, the MiniMed™ Silhouette™ infusion set offers comfort and flexibility by allowing your patients to choose their insertion angle. It is available in 4 tubing lengths and 2 cannula lengths. The 13mm cannula is available in 18", 23", 32", and 43" lengths; the 17mm cannula is available in 23", 32", and 43" lengths.
Combining comfort with ease of use
Use the MiniMed™ Quick-serter™ to easily insert the cannula under the skin.
The 90-degree soft cannula MiniMed™ Quick-set™ infusion set is available in four tubing lengths and two cannula lengths. The 6mm length cannula is most suitable for lean individuals and is available in 18", 23", 32", and 43" lengths. The 9mm cannula is recommended for everyone else and is available in 23", 32", and 43" lengths.

Important Safety Information: Infusion Sets
Infusion sets require a prescription and are indicated for the subcutaneous infusion of insulin from an infusion pump. Infusion sets are not indicated for intravenous (IV) infusion or the infusion of blood or blood products. Inaccurate medication delivery,infection and/or site irritation may result from improper insertion and maintenance of the infusion site. Before insertion,clean the insertion site with isopropyl alcohol. Remove the needle guard before inserting the infusion set. If using thisinfusion set for the first time, do the first set-up in the presence of your healthcare professional. Do not leave air in the infusionset. Prime completely. Follow the instructions provided and replace as indicated in those instructions. For more details, see https://bit.ly/infusionsetsafety
