  • Publication number: 20180353696
    Abstract: An injection device comprises a housing containing a cartridge, a needle holder including an injection needle, and a cap. The cap is removably engaged with the housing. The injection device also comprises a translating mechanism configured such that linear distal movement of the cap causes proximal movement of the needle holder such that the injection needle pierces the cartridge.

  • Publication number: 20180344934
    Abstract: A medicament injection device comprising a main body arranged to receive a medicament cartridge; a needle carrier carrying a needle, wherein the needle carrier is axially movable with respect to the main body; and a rotatable cap at a distal end of the device, wherein the cap is removably coupled to the needle carrier, a releasable arrangement between the main body and the cap comprising a guide element and a slotted link, wherein the slotted link is arranged to cause the guide element to follow a predefined path at least partly in an axial direction during rotational movement of the cap, thereby causing the needle carrier to move axially towards a proximal end of the device as the cap is rotated up to a predefined point, wherein the main body comprises a medicament cartridge holder comprising the guide element depending therefrom for engagement with the cap.

  • Publication number: 20180339105
    Abstract: A medicament delivery device is provided. The medicament delivery device may include, among other features, a cartridge holder mounted in a housing and configured to receive a cartridge containing a medicament. The device may also include an outer cap detachably connected to the housing, and a coupling mechanism configured to connect the outer cap to an injection needle holder to which an injection needle is fixed. The coupling mechanism may include a rotatable member configured to be connected to an injection needle holder. The coupling mechanism may also be threadedly engaged with, and rotatable to, the outer cap. The configuration of the device may allow for quicker and more efficient delivery of medicament.

  • Publication number: 20180326155
    Abstract: A medicament injection device comprising: a main body configured to receive a medicament cartridge sealed with a penetrable barrier, a needle holder holding a needle, a needle sleeve arranged around at least a portion of the needle holder and needle, and arranged to be axially movable with respect to the main body; and a retainer coupled to the needle holder and to the needle sleeve and axially movable with respect to the main body along the main axis of the device; wherein the retainer is coupled to the needle holder so that, upon displacement of the needle sleeve and the retainer by a predefined distance towards a proximal end of the main body, the needle holder and needle are displaced axially towards the proximal end of the main body and decouple from the retainer; and wherein the needle sleeve is configured to disengage from the needle holder upon axial displacement of the needle sleeve in the proximal direction beyond the predefined distance.
