  • Patent number: 9381308
    Abstract: The invention relates to an injection supporting device for a syringe. The syringe comprises a cartridge for a medicament and may comprise an injection needle extending in a z-direction from the cartridge to dispense the contents of the cartridge. Alternatively the injection needle may be part of the injection supporting device itself. The injection supporting device comprises a housing to receive at least a part of the cartridge, a needle shield and a resilient member coupled to the needle shield and the housing. The needle shield comprises a distal portion and a proximal portion, a distal opening in a front end of the distal portion and a needle guide for guiding the injection needle towards the distal opening.

  • Patent number: 9155842
    Abstract: A medication delivery device (1) comprises an indicator element (3) having indications (300) and a magnifying device located over an indication position (32). The magnifying device (4) comprises an optical system (5) with a magnifying lens (43) wherein the optical system (5) is constructed such that the optical path length between the indication position (32) and the magnifying lens (43) is enlarged. As an example, the medication delivery device (1) is a pen-type device, wherein a dose dial element (30) having a dosage scale (31) is disposed. The magnifying device (4) generates a magnified image of the dosage scale (31) so that the size of the selected dose (33) of the medical product is visible through a window (41). A method for assembling the medication delivery device (1) includes providing a medication delivery device (1) having a receptacle and mounting an element of the magnifying device (4) at the receptacle.

  • Publication number: 20130140208
    Abstract: A method of closing the distal end of an ampoule is shown. The ampoule has a variable diameter head portion having a locating surface and an opening. A septum is positioned on the opening and secured to the head portion with a ferrule using a plunger. The plunger exerts a force in a proximal direction to press the ferrule on the head portion until the press causes the ferrule to contact the locating surface. Further, the ampoule for use in a cartridge for a drug delivery device has non-standard dimensions to provide a coding system to reduce the risk of a user dispensing the wrong medicament from the drug delivery device.
