Insulin Colour Code

  • List of Insulin Producers

A universal colour code means that similar preparations of insulin have the same colour on the label regardless of manufacturer, and that this is standardized worldwide. Such a colour code helps to reduce confusion and uncertainty for people with diabetes who have to buy insulin abroad or from a different source.

Following an IDF initiative, major insulin manufacturers have agreed on a universal colour code for human insulin preparations. All parties are now actively working together to produce a colour code for insulin analogues.
