Notably, this is Abbott’s first-ever 15-day sensor, allowing FreeStyle Libre users to wait longer than ever before replacing their sensors. FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensors also fully compatible with the Tandem® t:slim X2® insulin pump.

Ideal For

The FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensor is a perfect fit for t:slim X2 users who wish to use these insulin pumps along with a FreeStyle Libre CGM, as well as current FreeStyle Libre 2 System users interested in creating a hybrid closed-loop system.

If you have already started the FreeStyle Libre 2 System, you can order FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensors to use with your reader or smart device. Otherwise, these sensors are available alongside the FreeStyle Libre 2 reader. (Please note that this product is incompatible with the FreeStyle Libre 3 reader and app.)

 

*High levels of vitamin C may affect the accuracy of sensor readings. Refer to the FreeStyle Libre 2 user manual for more information.

How to Start a FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus/t:slim X2 Sensor Session Directions

Step One: Pair Your t:slim X2

Before you can start a FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensor session with the t:slim X2, you’ll need to pair your insulin pump with a compatible mobile device. The official t:connect mobile app pairing guide includes a detailed explanation of this process.

Step Two: Use the t:connect App

Once your mobile device and t:slim X2 have been paired, select “Settings” on the t:connect mobile app’s Navigation bar. From there, tap “CGM” and “FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus.” If you use an Android device, you’ll also need to tap “Settings” from your phone’s Home screen, tap “Connections,” and check to ensure NFC and contactless payments are turned on.

Step Three: Begin Scanning

Next, it’s time to start scanning for your FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensor. If you have an iPhone, tap “Start scanning” and hold the top of your device near your sensor; if you are an Android user, you’ll hold the back of your device near the sensor instead. Either way, you’ll hear a noise or feel a vibration when the scan is complete.

Step Four: Use Your Sensor With Your Pump

Once the Sensor Session Started screen appears, you’ll be nearly ready to start using your t:slim X2 and FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensor together. At this point, your pump and mobile app will display a CGM trend graph and a symbol indicating your sensor startup countdown. When this symbol is fully filled, your sensor session will begin.

Frequently Asked Questions - FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus Sensor

This product includes a single FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensor. However, US MED ships 90-day supplies to all our patients, reducing your chances of running out of sensors. 

If your FreeStyle Libre Plus 2 sensor has fallen off or been manually removed, you cannot reuse this device and should start a new sensor instead.

With a service life of 15 days, FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensors deliver Abbott’s longest sensor lifespan yet. In contrast, both the original FreeStyle Libre 2 sensor and the FreeStyle Libre 3 sensor lasted 14 days at most.

As is the case for Abbott’s other sensors, there is no upper limit on the number of times FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus users can scan their sensors per day.

Control-IQ technology should not be used by anyone under the age of 6 years old. It should also not be used in patients who require less than 10 units of insulin per day or who weigh less than 55 pounds.
