Asante Solutions Inc., a Sunnyvale-based medical device company manufacturing an insulin pump, has announced its intention to use DexCom Inc.’s mobile platform to integrate and display insulin data.

This will be the second insulin delivery device to be integrated into the DexCom mobile application, which is designed to aggregate glucose and other diabetes-related data from patients’ devices and display the data on a smartphone.

“More than ever, we believe that effective diabetes management depends on timely and accurate data.” said Kevin Sayer, DexCom’s president and chief operating officer. “That is why we are excited to complete development of our mobile app and integrate data from the Asante Snap Insulin Pump system.”

DexCom (NASDAQ: DXCM) is a San Diego-based medical device company developing and marketing glucose monitoring systems for ambulatory use by patients and health care providers in hospitals.
