Mixtard 50 HM 100IU/ml Penfill is a combination of two insulin preparations: Insulin Isophane / NPH and human insulin / soluble insulin.

Together, they ensure rapid and consistent sugar control by facilitating reuptake of sugar in muscle and fat cells and suppressing the production of sugar in the liver.
