Developed for people with diabetes in India, TouStar® is the first reusable insulin pen intended for delivery of Toujeo®, a concentrated basal insulin from Sanofi.

With a dedicated replaceable cartridge system, TouStar® can only be used with Toujeo® insulin cartridges. These contain a concentrated ‘U300’ formula with 50% more insulin than a regular cartridge, making them more convenient and longer lasting. To prevent users from accidentally attaching incompatible insulin cartridges to TouStar®, the new dedicated cartridge system simplifies the cartridge exchange process and helps to prevent insulin mix-ups from occurring.
