SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 20, 2019– Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a leading insulin delivery and diabetes technology company, today announced Health Canada approval of the t:slim X2™ insulin pump with Basal-IQ™ technology. Basal-IQ technology, a predictive low-glucose suspend (PLGS) algorithm, utilizes sensor values from an integrated Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to help reduce the frequency and duration of low-glucose events (hypoglycemia). All in-warranty t:slim X2 pump users in Canada will have the option to add Basal-IQ technology to their existing pump free of charge via remote software update in February 2020.1 Tandem expects to begin shipping t:slim X2 pumps with Basal-IQ technology to new customers in the first quarter of 2020.

“The t:slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from current users and we are thrilled to bring its benefits to our customers in Canada,” said John Sheridan, president and CEO of Tandem Diabetes Care. “Our ability to provide in-warranty t:slim X2 pump users a software update to add Basal-IQ technology to their current pumps using a personal computer is unparalleled in the industry and further differentiates the t:slim X2 insulin pump from other devices on the market.”

Yay Tandem!
