I just called Abbott to ask about their plans now that Smiths has decided to exit the diabetes business. The rep who answered the phone was very articulate and knowledgable about both the Cozmore pump and the Navigator and was SHOCKED to learn Smiths will no longer be making the Cozmore! Apparently this was a bomb dropped on everyone. While we were on the phone, he confirmed Smiths and Abbott were working on an integration for the Cozmore and Navigator, last he heard. He was so surprised about Smiths he was speechless for a few seconds. He even went to Smiths website to verify I was speaking the truth. He did tell me that Abbott is in no way going to eliminate the Navigator. He said it's a new product and is selling well. He did say Abbott is working on "several new devices" for the diabetes community that will hopefully be announced later this year. I told him to pass along that many Cozmore users would like it if Abbott purchased the rights to make their pump. So anyway, it is interesting to me that apparently the customer service reps at Abbott are/were unaware of the Smiths bombshell.
