    By the screw thingy, do you mean the "plunger" part which looks like a screw?

    I don't have the Novopen Junior, but the mechanism of the pen I have acts like a plunger/pressure thing against the vial, kwim?

    It's called the piston rod. And you can see it if you unscrew the middle part of the pen.

    The novo pens as far as I am aware only work with novo cartridges... Lilly does have a half unit pen, the Luxura HD.

    ok guess ill have to find a luxura ....no the part of the pen i was talking about was the end of it where you actually screw the tip on apparently novonordisc cartridges have a screw end on them ...i had no trouble getting the pen apart and putting a cartridge in
