Infusion Sets

We offer a variety of choices to meet the unique needs of our pump users.

 
 

How Infusion Sets Work

An infusion set consists of a complete tubing system that delivers insulin from your Tandem Diabetes Care® insulin pump. Your healthcare provider or insulin pump trainer will work with you to show you how to insert your infusion set and discuss how to change it out every 2-3 days.

Which set is right for you?

Infusion set tubing is available in a variety of lengths, typically 23, 32, and 43 inches. The length you choose will depend on factors related to your height, location of pump, daily activities and other preferences. Our infusion sets also come with a choice of cannulas: 90-degree soft, angled soft, or 90-degree steel.

Watch this video to learn about the different types of infusion sets as well as basic precautions and considerations. Your healthcare provider or pump trainer will help you determine which set is right for you.

Switching from another insulin pump brand?

Tandem infusion sets are made by Unomedical, the same company that manufactures infusion sets sold by other insulin pump companies. In most cases, even though products are labeled under different names, they are identical infusion sets. Here is a list of commonly used infusion sets and the equivalent Tandem brand names. Note that identical sets often have different reservoir connectors and are not compatible across pump manufacturers.
