Intermediate-acting insulins are considered depot insulins.
Long-acting insulins are also considered to be depot insulins.
A depot insulin is one which serves as a basal insulin. The short-acting insulins, no matter whether they are analog or not, would not be considered depot insulins. Those in the intermediate-acting and long-acting categories are thought of as both basal and depot insulins, regardless of their origin(s).
