  • Patent number: 6802416
    Abstract: A package assembly or kit can be used in conjunction with storing and dispensing adhesive materials. The package assembly can include an enclosure in which an applicator and a container may be positioned. The container contains adhesive material. The enclosure may include a base and a cover. The base preferably includes one or more cavities, with at least one applicator disposed in one of the cavities. Further, the container may be disposed in another of the cavities. The cover may be provided with a plurality of wells. The container may include a restrictor positioned within a neck of the container. The restrictor is provided to limit the volume of adhesive material retained in an absorbent end of an applicator such as a swab. The package assembly can be provided in a sterilized condition.

  • Patent number: 6595940
    Abstract: A disposable applicator includes a generally tubular applicator body having a closed proximal end and an open distal end and a frangible vial inside. The proximal end is covered by a drying swab while the distal end is covered by an applicator swab that is in open communication with the interior of the applicator body. Within the applicator body is a frangible vial containing a biomedically useful liquid composition, such as an &agr;-cyanoacrylate adhesive, a medicament, or both. The applicator is useful for applying liquid compositions to target sites such as tissue, particularly sites of topical pathology, such as stomatitis lesions.
