`New' Novopen II insulin delivery device for use with Novo Nordisk Penfill cartridges, by Novo Nordisk A/S, 1989.

The ‘Novopen II’ (shown on the right) is a handheld device used by people with diabetes to inject insulin into the body. Diabetes is a condition where the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin to break down sugars in the body. The injected dose can be varied easily. The pen is a discreet way to administer insulin and is easy to use. Made by Novo Nordisk A/S, the Novopen II can be bought from medical suppliers. It is shown here with a similar device (1993-932).
