New Generation of Enlite® sensor


The New Generation of Enlite Sensor is Medtronic’s newest continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) sensor designed with the goal of better performance as well as exceptional comfort and ease of use.


Better protection from Hypoglycaemia with Enlite

New Generation Enlite sensor

  • The MiniMed Veo™ system with Low Glucose Suspend when used with the Enlite sensor is the only system clinically proven to significantly reduce hypoglycaemia events. It significantly reduces the number of event as well as their duration and severity.1,2
  • 98% of all hypoglycaemic events were detected with Enlite when used with the MiniMed Veo system3




Designed for comfort

  • Now even smaller: 80% reduction in implanted size compared to previous Enlite sensor
  • Improved sensor to transmitter connection
  • Improved electrode, designed for consistent performance throughout the sensor life
  • New tape, designed for superior comfort and minimised skin irritation
  • 6 days of use
  • Indicated for adults and children

Insertion is Easy



  • Hidden needle during insertion
  • 90 degree insertion angle
  • One button insertion process


85% of patients agreed that insertion with Enlite was pain free4

CGM provides the complete picture

CGM reveals lows and highs that HbA1C and fingerstick testing alone cannot.

CGM reduces HbA1c and improves glycaemic control

Several randomised controlled trials5,6,7 showed that CGM can lead to:

  • Up to 1% HbA1C reduction without increasing the rate of severe hypoglycaemia
  • Tighter glycemic control
  • Greater number of patients reaching the HbA1C target recommended by the ADA
