NovoFine® Autocover®—designed for added safety.
Removing and disposing of needles after injection can lead to accidental needlesticks. If you're concerned about accidental needlesticks, NovoFine® Autocover® may be the right needle for you.
You’re covered against accidental needlesticks.
NovoFine® Autocover® has a protective shield that retracts during injection. After injecting, the shield re-covers the needle and locks back into place, which may help reduce the risk of accidental needlesticks and needle reuse.a
The NovoFine® Autocover® safety shield may help you avoid the potential problems outlined above because once it locks, the needle can't be reused.
NovoFine® Autocover® comes in 30G 8 mm.
NovoFine® Autocover® plastic shield hides the needle.
The first thing you’ll notice when you look at NovoFine® Autocover® is what you don’t see—the needle. A built-in shield covers the needle so it’s hidden before, during, and after the injection.

Fits all currently available insulin pens and some GLP-1 receptor agonist pens.b
