  • Patent number: 10661064
    Abstract: The invention relates to applicators for applying a solution or other composition (e.g., an antiseptic composition) to skin of a patient. The applicator may include a container body having a proximal end, a distal end, and a frangible member disposed at the distal end of the body. The applicator includes a first position where the container body and frangible member are a unitary piece (e.g., blow molded as a single piece), and a second position when the frangible member is rotated relative to the body to irreversibly break a weak point therebetween, releasing the composition in the hollow body through an opening. A porous applicator head may be positioned adjacent the distal end of the body and frangible member, so that the composition flows out the body, through the opening, and onto the head. The applicator may be formed in a blow-fill-seal process for improved sterility and ease of manufacture.

  • Patent number: 10654640
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing compostable food containers which preserve the quality of a food product for an extended duration of time, and which optionally allow for cooking of the food product therein. In some implementations, the food containers are sturdy, stackable, insulating, and require minimal or no manual labor to assemble. In some implementations, the food container includes a base and a cover which cooperate to form a closed chamber for supporting, protecting, insulating and optionally cooking a food product, such as a pizza. The base and cover may each be formed of a single layer of material including, but not limited to, molded sugarcane fiber (“bagasse”), molded wood fiber, molded bamboo fiber, molded paper or plastic. The base and/or the cover may include one or more detachable portions that may be selectively separable from the remaining portion of the base and/or cover.

  • Publication number: 20170267390
    Abstract: This disclosure provides new containers, preforms, methods, and designs for small and light-weight carbonated beverage packaging that provide surprisingly improved carbonation retention and greater shelf life, while still achieving light weight. This disclosure is particularly drawn to small PET containers for carbonated beverages, for example less than or about 400 mL, and methods and designs for their fabrication that attain unexpectedly good carbonation retention and shelf life.

  • Publication number: 20150374729
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods and kits for use in reducing microbial counts on a patient's skin prior to surgery. Such a kit may be sealed, and include a dry substrate, a container of antiseptic composition, a tray with recessed portion(s), and a cover in sealing contact with a top rim of the tray to seal the contents in the tray. Such a kit may include two (e.g., identical) trays, which are initially attached to one another, each tray providing contents sufficient for one use (e.g., one use within 2 hours of the scheduled surgery, and a prior use done earlier (e.g., the night before). The related method may include providing the kit, removing the cover, dosing the substrate with the antiseptic composition in the tray's recessed region, and using the dosed substrate to apply the composition to skin proximate a location of the invasive procedure to be performed.
