Walmart teams up with Novo Nordisk to launch private-brand analog insulin 

Walmart (NYSE:WMT) is launching what it describes as the first private label analog insulin. The company estimates the insulin products will save customers between 58% and 70% of the cost of branded insulin.

Novo Nordisk (NYSE:NVO) will manufacture the analog insulin, which is a type of lab-grown insulin genetically engineered to optimize glucose control. The retail price of analog insulin vials will be $72.88, while a FlexPen insulin pen will cost $85.88. Walmart has concluded that the per-unit savings of the products will be $101 per vial and $251 per insulin pen, respectively.

The insulin will only be available through Walmart’s ReliOn brand of diabetes products.
