Description: Humulin is a recombinant human insulin.

Humulin R (regular) consists of zinc-insulin crystals dissolved in a clear fluid. Humulin R has nothing added to change the speed or length of its action. It takes effect rapidly and has a relatively short duration of activity (4 to 12 hours) as compared with other insulins.

Humulin N (Neutral Protamine Hagedorn , NPH) is a crystalline suspension with protamine and zinc providing an intermediate-acting insulin with a slower onset of action and a longer duration of activity (up to 24 hours) than that of regular insulin.
