  • Patent number: 10918849
    Abstract: A connection apparatus for a medical device includes a first connection member having a first end and a second end with the first connection member defining at least one channel adjacent the first end. The at least one channel having a first portion extending in an axial direction and a shoulder adjacent to the first end of the first connection member that defines a channel entry. The at least one channel having a second portion extending in a transverse direction relative to the axial direction. The connection apparatus further including a second connection member having a first end and a second end and at least one protrusion adjacent the first end. The shoulder is configured to guide the at least one protrusion of the second connection member into the channel entry regardless of the orientation of the at least one protrusion relative to the channel entry.

  • Patent number: 10517797
    Abstract: An adapter for connection with a fluid container includes an outer housing having a distal end, a proximal end, and a generally cylindrical sidewall extending between the distal end and the proximal end, an inner member comprising a body rotatably inserted within the outer housing, a first locking arrangement configured to restrict the inner member from rotating relative to the housing in a first direction, and a second locking arrangement configured to restrict the inner member from rotating relative to the housing in both the first direction and a second direction. The adapter is transitionable between: a disengaged state, in which the first locking arrangement and the second locking arrangement are not engaged with the inner member; a partially engaged state in which the first locking arrangement engages the inner member; and a fully engaged state in which the second locking arrangement engages the inner member.

  • Publication number: 20190314583
    Abstract: A syringe adapter includes a housing having a first end and a second end with the first end configured to be secured to a first container, a cannula having a first end and a second end with the second end of the cannula positioned within the housing, and a collet having a first end and a second end. At least a portion of the collet is received within the housing. The collet includes a body defining a passageway, a membrane received by the passageway, and a locking member connected to the body of the collet. The membrane has a body with a first end and a second end. The body of the membrane defines a passageway. The collet is movable from a first position where the locking member is open to receive a mating connector to a second position where radially outward movement of the locking member is restricted.

  • Publication number: 20190307644
    Abstract: An assembly fixture device for attaching a vial adapter to a vial includes a base, a support member secured to the base, a handle connected to the support member, a vial adapter grip assembly connected to the handle and comprising an adapter grip member configured to engage and hold a vial adapter, and a vial grip assembly connected to the base comprising first and second grip members that are movable relative to each other and configured to engage and hold a vial. The first grip member is biased toward the second grip member to provide a vial engagement force, where the vial engagement force is about constant when a distance between the first and second grip members is less than 40 mm.

  • Patent number: 10206853
    Abstract: A medical connector system including a first connector and a second connector. The first connector has a housing, a biasing member, and at least one projection. The second connector has at least one groove for receiving the at least one projection. The proximal end of the second connector is configured to be at least partially disposed within the distal end of the housing of the first connector. Upon application and release of a first set of opposing axial forces applied to the connector system, the first connector is locked to the second connector and, upon application and release of a second set of opposing axial forces, the first connector is released from the second connector. The connectors may include indicators to show when the connector system is in the locked position.

  • Patent number: 7254014
    Abstract: A mounting apparatus for a display comprises a plate configured to hold a source of light for a display, a first housing sealingly connected to the plate, and a second housing sealingly connected to the plate. The plate has a first side, a second side, and a peripheral edge. The second side is opposite the first side. The first housing and the first side of the plate cooperate to form a first substantially gas-tight seal proximate the peripheral edge. The second housing and the second side of the plate cooperate to form a second substantially gas-tight seal proximate the peripheral edge. The second housing includes a flange extending over at least a portion of the peripheral edge and beyond a plane of the first side of the plate. The flange is separated from the first housing by a gap such that the first and second seals can be formed.
