  • Publication number: 20210007652
    Abstract: A lancing device including a latch that pivots between a non-blocking position allowing a lancet carrier and a lancet to advance and retract through a first forward and reverse lancing stroke and a blocking position preventing further/excess/secondary oscillation of the lancet carrier and lancet. The pivotal latch can pivot about an axis perpendicular (e.g., for an L-shaped latch) or parallel/coaxial (e.g., for a sleeve latch) to the advancement and retraction motion of the lancet carrier and lancet.

  • Publication number: 20200368429
    Abstract: A method and device employing the method that identifies a solution based on characteristic electrochemical signal. Many solutions are electroactive, thus producing an electric signal following excitation with an applied potential. An electrochemical sensor can detect these electric signals if it is placed in contact with the fluid. Moreover, a fluid of known composition will produce a characteristic electrochemical signal and this characteristic signal can be used to confirm the presence of that fluid. The use of characteristic electrochemical signal to identify a fluid can be conducted at all scales and in many different fields. A few examples include quality control in food production or pharmaceutical manufacturing or for detection of air bubbles in a fluid stream or for identification of medicament prior to administration via a body worn patch pump/pod.

  • Patent number: 10576201
    Abstract: A valve for use in connection with microfluidic devices includes a safety feature such that flow is controlled even in the case of a loss of power, thus having applications in critical applications such as the precise delivery of drugs overtime. The valve may be used in connection with multiple tubes delivering drugs, and may be used with a pump, such as an electrochemical pump, to provide the force to move the fluids containing drugs for delivery. In certain applications, more than one medicine may be delivered and metered independently using a single pump with multiple reservoirs and valves.

  • Publication number: 20050119694
    Abstract: A tissue approximation device and method, particularly in the mid-face region, are provided. The device is an implantable, biodegradable construct that has attachment points emanating from a supportive backing. The device also has an extension member or leash which extends from the backing which is configured to receive a tissue or bone attachment device at one of a plurality of selectable locations along the elongated member, for example via engagement holes extending in a line away from the backing. Once tissue is engaged with the attachment points, the extension member is pulled until the tissue is approximated in the desired position. Then the appropriate extension member hole(s) are selected to attach the extension member to supportive tissue or bone (for example temporal fascia) for permanent tissue approximation.
