Firstly they both contain different types of insulin and have different working profiles.

Novolin 70/30 contains 70% NPH, human insulin isophane suspension and 30% regular human insulin [rDNA origin].

Lantus Solostar contains Insulin glargine. It is a man-made form of a hormone that is produced in the body. It works by lowering levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Insulin glargine is a long-acting form of insulin that is slightly different from other forms of insulin that are not man-made.

Insulin glargine is used to treat type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
