Genotropin comes in a range of different delivery devices, designed to suit patients throughout their treatment course.
Our range of devices work together, to provide for different needs and situations that your patients will experience – whether for young children attending school, or young adults experiencing travel or situations where a fridge may not be available.
One of the main concerns patients have when starting their therapy is centred around injections. The Genotropin delivery devices are designed to be easy to use and learn, so that patients can feel confident about administering therapy.
