  • Publication number: 20180368771
    Abstract: The present embodiments relate generally to applicators of on-skin sensor assemblies for measuring an analyte in a host, as well as their method of use and manufacture. In some aspects, an applicator for applying an on-skin sensor assembly to a skin of a host is provided. The applicator includes an applicator housing, a needle carrier assembly comprising an insertion element configured to insert a sensor of the on-skin sensor assembly into the skin of the host, a holder releasably coupled to the needle carrier assembly and configured to guide the on-skin sensor assembly while coupled to the needle carrier assembly, and a drive assembly configured to drive the insertion element from a proximal starting position to a distal insertion position, and from the distal insertion position to a proximal retraction position.

  • Patent number: 9814773
    Abstract: The present invention provides for injectable pharmaceutical sustained release formulations for delivery of active agents, particularly therapeutic proteins, to the eye. The formulations are biocompatible, biodegradable sustained release formulations comprising low-solubility liquid excipients and relatively small amounts (less than about 10%) of biocompatible, biodegradable polymer such as PLA or PLGA polymers. A unit dose of 5 ?L to 100 ?L of the formulation provides for sustained release of the agent for at least 14 days.

  • Patent number: 7601515
    Abstract: A process is provided for the preparation of albumin from a yeast culture medium which has extremely low levels of or is essentially free of colorants, metal ions, human proteins, host proteins, fragments of albumin, polymers or aggregates of albumin and viruses, and which is essentially non-glycated, relatively high in free thiol and with an intact C-terminus. The process comprises separating the yeast from the culture medium to yield an albumin solution; subjecting the albumin solution to positive mode cation exchange, affinity, and positive mode anion exchange chromatography; and concentrating and formulating the albumin with sodium octanoate and sodium chloride.

  • Patent number: 7223561
    Abstract: A process is provided for the preparation of albumin which has extremely low levels of or is essentially free of colorants, metal ions, human proteins, host proteins, fragments of albumin, polymers or aggregates of albumin and viruses, and which is essentially non-glycated, relatively high in free thiol and with an intact C-terminus. The process comprises passing albumin (preferably expressed and secreted by transformed yeast) through positive mode cation exchange and then positive mode anion exchange chromatography. Other steps may also be employed, ultrafiltration, gel permeation chromatography, affinity chromatography binding the albumin by using blue dyes) and affinity chromatography binding contaminants by using an aminophenylboronic acid resin. Elution of albumin, with a compound having affinity for albumin, from a material having no specific affinity for albumin is also disclosed, as is removal of ammonium ions with a counter-ion.
