  • Patent number: 11467136
    Abstract: A septum contains at least one internal chamber along the central axis of the septum. The chamber provides relief space into which the sealing sections of the septum can deform as a needle passes through the septum. Incorporation of the chamber reduces surface area contact and friction between the septum and needle, which results in reduced septum tearing and reduced production of particulate matter from abrasion.

  • Patent number: 11416844
    Abstract: Authentication method and systems using RFID-enabled payment cards are disclosed herein where a server receives a request corresponding to authorization of a payment associated with a payment card from an electronic terminal. The server identifies an electronic device of a user associated with the payment card. The server then transmits an instruction to the electronic device to cause an RFID reader of the electronic device to determine whether an RFID tag corresponding to the payment card is located within a predetermined proximity to the electronic device. When the payment card is located within the predetermined proximity, the server executes a first authentication protocol. Moreover, when the payment card is not located within the predetermined proximity, the server executes a second authentication protocol, wherein the second authentication protocol is more restrictive than the first authentication protocol.
