NovoPen® 3


Storage and handling

NovoPen® 3 is a precision tool and should be handled with care. Avoid situations where your NovoPen® 3 can be damaged and keep it in the case whenever possible. You can also keep a spare Penfill® in its pack, and three spare NovoFine® needles in the case.

Please read the leaflet in the Penfill® pack for details on how to store the cartridges and how long to keep them.

Your NovoPen® 3 is tough but could still get damaged, so handle it with care and protect it against dust and dirt when it is not in its case.


You can clean your NovoPen® 3 by wiping it with cotton wool moistened with ethyl or isopropyl alcohol. Do not soak NovoPen® 3 with alcohol, wash or lubricate it, as this could damage the mechanism. Clean off dirt and dust with a soft brush.

Things to remember
