On October 20, GEROPHARM made the second delivery under a long-term contract concluded by the company with the Government of Venezuela and partners ESPROMED BIO and CORPOVEX last year.
The current batch includes more than 800,000 cartridges and 420,000 vials of rapid- and intermediate-acting human insulins Rinsulin R, Rinsulin NPH, as well as more than 3,000 cartridges of long-acting analogue insulin RinGlar (insulin glargine).
In addition to insulins, patients have also received more than 5,000 reusable pen injectors for comfortable administration of medicinal products. A distinctive feature of Rinsapen II pen injector is its unique lightweight composite body, which is heat-resistant and ensures an even temperature regime of insulin in the cartridge.

And this is not only a partner position, but also an understanding of responsibility to each patient, whose life and health depends on our medicinal products”.
All medicinal products and medical devices are stored under special temperature conditions in warehouses in Caracas. From there, they will be distributed to regional medical institutions for further prescription to patients.
