Superior accuracy and precision
The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM sensor has excellent overall accuracy in the hypoglycemic range (40 mg/dl - 80 mg/dl). With Mean ARD (Absolute Relative Difference) as the industry’s standard for measuring CGM accuracy, the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM sensor's 13% Mean ARD provides exceptional performance and accuracy for reliable results.1
Longest sensor wear
Like all Dexcom sensors, Dexcom G4® PLATINUM is approved for up to seven days of wear delivering more days of CGM data than those approved for a shorter duration and requires fewer changes.
The smallest introducer needles
Dexcom G4® is a tiny, round and flexible sensor with the one of the smallest introducer needles in the market.†
*The Animas® Vibe™ System is indicated for adult patients 18 years and older only.
†Dexcom G4® PLATINUM sensor introducer needle is the smallest available in comparison to Medtronic Enlite® introducer needle. Measured as the cross-sectional area of the introducer needle.
‡Patients must confirm CGM reading with a fingerstick test before taking action.

Important Safety Information
The Animas® Vibe™ Insulin Pump and CGM System is intended for the delivery of insulin and for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for the management of insulin-requiring diabetes. The Animas® Vibe™ System’s CGM is indicated for detecting trends and tracking patterns in people age 18 and older. The system is intended for single patient use and requires a prescription.
Insulin pump therapy is not recommended for people unwilling or unable to test their blood glucose four to six times per day, unwilling or unable to see their healthcare professional regularly, or whose vision or hearing does not allow recognition of pump alerts, warnings, and alarms. The Animas® Vibe™ System must be removed before MRI or CT scan, and the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter removed before diathermy treatment. Taking acetaminophen-containing medications while wearing the sensor may falsely raise sensor glucose readings.
Connecting to the pump before receiving the necessary training could result in serious injury or death. CGM glucose readings are not to be used to make treatment decisions. The sensor and transmitter do not replace a blood glucose meter. The sensor and transmitter are not to be used during pregnancy or while on dialysis. Sensor placement is not approved for sites other than under the skin of the belly (abdomen). Patients should seek professional medical help if a sensor breaks and no portion of it is visible above the skin, or if there is infection or inflammation. Any broken sensors or adverse events should be reported to Customer Service.
