  • Patent number: 8177099
    Abstract: A cartridge for storing and dispensing substances that are in paste form and/or capable of flow is formed by at least one tube, in which a closure piston and a dispensing piston adjustable by means of a piston rod are disposed, so as to form a seal, in such a manner that a chamber is formed between the pistons. At least one passage opening is provided in the closure piston, and at least one projection is provided in the tube assigned to this closure piston and/or an outlet opening, whereby the passage opening and the projection are adapted to one another, in terms of their shape, in such a manner that the closure piston can be displaced between a closure position, in which the chamber is closed, and a dispensing position, in which the chamber stands in a flow connection with the outlet opening, by means of the passage opening.

  • Patent number: 8020728
    Abstract: A container for accommodating liquid and/or pasty substances is provided with a tubular outlet connector that is sealed via a film or a similar membrane relative to the substance accommodated in the container for storage. An inlet connector of a dispensing element can be inserted into the outlet connector. Furthermore, a piercing sleeve is displaceably accommodated in the outlet connector. The piercing sleeve can be displaced via setting on the inlet connector of the dispensing element so that the film or similar membrane is cut open. Furthermore, a combination of such a container and a dispensing element that can be connected with it, as well as a method for opening a container, are provided.

  • Patent number: 7887231
    Abstract: The invention relates, among other things, to a device for storing and dispensing viscous substances, which are to be mixed from at least two components for use, having a film-like carrier, for example, in which at least three or four depressions are formed, for example arranged next to one another in a row, which are open towards the top, at first, so that one of the components, in each instance, can be introduced from the top into one of two center depressions, in each instance, i.e. depressions that are adjacent and are arranged at essentially the same distance from a bending line, and afterwards, the two center depressions can be sealed with a cover film, towards the outside, forming a chamber, in each instance, in such a manner that between each center chamber and at least one adjacent outer depression, a connection channel that opens towards at least one outer depression when pressure is applied to the center chamber, in each instance, by way of a planned breakage point, remains.

  • Patent number: 7858673
    Abstract: A method for sterilizing medical single-component or multi-component impression materials that can harden, and a two-component impression material. In a first step of the method, the components of the impression materials that have not hardened are introduced into a primary packaging. In a second step, the primary packagings, with the components contained therein, are sterilized by heat sterilization. In a third step, the sterilized components in the primary packagings are introduced into a secondary packaging. In a fourth step, this secondary packaging is sterilized by means of a suitable gas sterilization, irradiation sterilization, and/or by means of sterilization in an autoclave, so that the activity and the viscosity of the components are not changed.
