Iranian Health Minister Saeed Namaki and Vice-President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari unveiled the first production line of insulin pens through video conference.

The insulin glargine pens are produced by Pooyesh Darou Company in Pardis Technology Park.


Insulin pen is one of the most important and strategic drugs for diabetes whose imports needs spending large amount of currency.

Insulin glargine is a subcategory of insulin analog which has been produced through biological and combination methods and will stay effective for 24 hours.

Thanks to its user friendliness characteristics for patients, and its higher effectiveness and safety, use of insulin pens has experienced significant growth over the last decade.


By producing Basalin, Iran is among producers of insulin analog in the world.

Safety and effectiveness of the product has been proved in clinical studies compared with its brands.

Addressing the ceremony, Head of Pardis Technology Park Mehdi Saffarnia said 40 companies in the park sold 7,500 billion rials worth of products.

He added that they exported 26 products to 11 countries.


These companies have produced 324 products in pharmaceutical and medical equipment fields, he noted.

Meanwhile, Sattari described launching the first insulin pen production line as a great and positive step for Iran.


He lauded the efforts made by ‘Pooyesh Darou Company’, saying the insulin pen production line was lunched under the support of Health Ministry and Food and Drug Administration of Iran.

In the meantime, Namaki appreciated the efforts made by scientists in ‘Pooyesh Darou Company’, saying last year we could reduce forex outflows by over $600m.

It is very important that despite cruel sanctions and sudden outbreak of coronavirus, Iranian industrialists, producers and knowledge-based companies brought honor for Iran.



‘Pooyesh Darou Company’ is the first pharmaceutical company in the Middle East which produces combination drugs.
