  • Publication number: 20140236046
    Abstract: An automatically locking safety device, e.g., for use in a blood collection procedure, can include a housing, first and second needle covers that are at least partly received in the housing, and a needle that is at least partly received in at least one of the first and second needle covers. The needle can include a proximal tip configured for placement into a patient and a distal tip configured for placement into a blood collection vial. In some embodiments, the first and second needle covers are biased by a biasing member. In some cases, one or both of the first and second needle covers can be locked to prevent axial movement thereof after the blood collection procedure. In certain embodiments, a distal end of the device is configured to connect with a medical connector, such as a needleless IV access device.

  • Patent number: 8672883
    Abstract: A fluid delivery device includes a cartridge and a syringe. The cartridge includes a housing and a stopper positioned within a fluid chamber defined by the housing. The syringe includes a needle, and an outer body and an inner core which cooperate to receive at least a portion of the housing. When the fluid delivery device is in a first configuration, at least a portion of the cartridge is positioned within the syringe and the stopper is connected to the inner core. In a second configuration, a lumen defined by the needle is in fluid communication with the fluid chamber. The inner core and stopper are movable distally relative to the outer body and needle as the fluid delivery device is transitioned from the first to the second configuration. In a third configuration, the cartridge and syringe cooperate to disable the fluid delivery device.

  • Patent number: 8636703
    Abstract: A syringe needle safety apparatus comprising a syringe barrel having an open end and an opposite end adapted for a needle and a needle safety cover displaceable between a un-deployed state wherein the cover is constrained and the needle exposed, and a deployed state wherein the cover covers at least the needle tip. A plunger is slidably engaged in the syringe barrel and at least one element secures the needle safety cover in the un-deployed state. Biasing means urge the needle safety cover from the un-deployed state to the deployed state, and a housing is coupled to the opposite end of the syringe barrel, the housing comprising a corresponding securing member and a deformable member, the deformable member releasing the at least one element from the corresponding securing member upon receiving a releasing force via the plunger. During deployment, the needle safety mechanism provides for the needle safety cover to avoid contact with the needle, reducing or eliminating blood contact.

  • Publication number: 20130199643
    Abstract: In one aspect, the invention is directed to a port assembly for establishing fluid communication between a first container and a second container. The port assembly includes a retainer for connecting a first container, where the retainer is positioned in a cavity defined by a port housing that includes an axially fixed actuator. The housing also includes a plug member constructed to seal a fluid passageway between the port housing and an interior of a second container. The plug member is configured to move axially relative to the actuator. Rotation of the retainer relative to the actuator causes the plug member to move to an open position in which it does not seal a fluid passageway between the port housing and an interior of a second container. The rotation of the retainer relative to the port housing also causes the retainer to move axially relative to the port housing so that the actuator forces a stopper associated with a first container connected to the retainer into a first container.

  • Publication number: 20130102992
    Abstract: A port assembly for establishing fluid communication between a first container and a second container. The port assembly includes a port housing for connection to a second container, and a retainer for connection to a first container, wherein the retainer rotates relative to the port housing and is constructed to move axially within the port housing. An actuator is axially fixed within the port housing and forces a stopper associated with a first container into a first container when the retainer moves axially within the port housing upon rotation of the retainer relative to the port housing. The assembly is configured to establish fluid communication between a first container and a second container upon rotation of the retainer relative to the port housing.

  • Publication number: 20130102990
    Abstract: A system for mixing the contents of a first container and a second container. The system includes the first container that has container body with an opening fluidly connected to a cavity defined by the container body, a first substance contained in the cavity, and a stopper sealing the opening. The second container includes a port assembly including a port housing connected to the second container and a retainer constructed to connect to the first container. The retainer is configured to rotate and move axially relative to the port housing, wherein relative rotation between the port housing and the retainer causes the retainer to move axially relative to the port housing. The port assembly further includes an axially fixed actuator constructed to force the stopper into the first container when the retainer is rotated relative to the port housing.
