Abstract: A self-retracting syringe has an injection assembly and a retraction assembly. The injection assembly has a housing, a spring rest, and a spring that is restrained initially in compression between the housing and the spring rest. A plunger rod is disposed inside the coil of the spring. A coupler in contact with the spring rest and the plunger rod releasably couples the plunger rod to the spring rest. When a latch is released, the plunger rod moves distally to urge a seal forward, which seal movement causes a hypodermic needle to extend and a medicament to be expelled through the hypodermic needle. A retraction assembly returns the hypodermic needle into the syringe body after the medicament is expelled. Embodiments of retraction assembly provide a port through which fluid may be introduced into the syringe through said hypodermic needle. Methods for filling the syringe are also described.
Abstract: A Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) secure data management system includes a BIOS that is configured to perform a boot process. At least one memory system is configured to provide a System Management (SM) memory location that is only accessible by the BIOS. A trusted platform module (TPM) includes at least one register and is configured to store sealed first secure data. The TPM is configured to use at least one first value in the at least one register that depends on the boot process to unseal the sealed first secure data to provide unsealed first secure data, and provide that unsealed first secure data to the BIOS for storage in the SM memory location. The BIOS is configured to retrieve the unsealed first secure data from the SM memory location and use the unsealed first secure data to perform a security function.

Abstract: An automatic injection syringe assembly having an integrated and fillable medicine container that includes a medicine container within a housing and a conduit assembly. The medicine container includes a piston having an aperture at a distal end thereof for the passage of fluid therethrough. The conduit assembly includes a conduit member that is releasably connected to the housing and has an open proximal end and an open distal end. The open distal end of the conduit member is releasably engaged with the piston and in fluid communication with the piston aperture. The open proximal end and the open distal end of the conduit member are m fluid communication via a conduit within the conduit member.
