  • Patent number: 10385842
    Abstract: A limiter for a dispensing device is provided. The limiter includes a body (20) arranged to mount with at least a portion of a dispensing device (300), and a stop extending from the body. The stop (40) is configured to permit movement a plunger of the dispensing device a predetermined distance in a dispensing direction correlated to a desired volume of medium to be delivered from the dispensing device. The stop is configured to prevent further movement of the plunger in the dispensing direction, thereby limiting the amount of medium delivered from the dispensing device. The dispensing device may be a syringe.

  • Patent number: 10322243
    Abstract: A dose setting mechanism for a medicament delivery device is presented having a locking assembly that reliably and consistently unlocks a dose injection button and concurrently a lead screw when the dose setting mechanism is transitioned from a non-activated state to an activated state. This locking assembly uses a rotating plate having a locking protrusion that engages a radial projecting tab on a rotationally fixed plunger rod nut. An alignment member is also presented that prevents rotational drift of a dosing member.

  • Patent number: 10159791
    Abstract: An injection device comprising a medicament container, a needle attached to the container, and a mechanism for automatic penetration of the needle, injection of medicament and withdrawal of the needle. The device operates by initiating a penetration sequence, followed by an injection sequence and followed by a withdrawal sequence. A previous sequence can trigger a subsequent sequence. The device further comprises a dampening mechanism arranged and designed to dampen the movement of the injection mechanism during an injection sequence.
