  • Patent number: 10052435
    Abstract: An active agent or drug injecting device (10) includes a main housing (16) containing a trigger mechanism (24) which can be manually activated via release bar (32) or remotely triggered via wireless receiver (70) activating motor (74), and a second housing (80) containing an injection- and needle-assembly (22). The needle (30) encloses a dry carrier (26) having an active agent (12) disposed thereon. The trigger mechanism triggers the injection assembly to propel the needle into the skin (via spring (54)), to inject the active agent into a living organism (either by letting the active agent diffuse out of the needle or by actively flushing it out), and to subsequently retract the needle back into the housing (80) (via spring (64)).

  • Patent number: 9821116
    Abstract: A fluid dispensing device is provided for dispensing a measured amount of fluid into a living organism. The device has a needle having a first end and a second end. The needle is adapted for interfacing, on the first end, with a septum of a flexible hollow membrane, and at a second end thereof, for subcutaneously inserting into a living organism. The needle is guided by a guide to permit an injection into the living organism at a substantially non-orthogonal angle with respect to a surface of the living organism. The first and second ends of the needle pierce their respective piercing surface while translating together in a common direction. In other embodiments, the dispensing device includes a main housing, a flexible fluid reservoir, an injection assembly and a trigger mechanism. The main housing houses the operative components of the device.

  • Patent number: 9821113
    Abstract: An infusion set adapted to be secured to a skin surface includes a fixed base member connectable to the skin surface and a movable member. A needle or cannula is connected to the movable member and movable relative to the fixed base member. The movable member is movable from a first position in which the needle or cannula is not exposed externally of the fixed base member to a second position in which the needle or cannula is exposed externally of the fixed base member. A release member retains the movable member in the first position. Removal of the release member allows movement of the movable slide member to the second position.

  • Patent number: 9528916
    Abstract: A robotic end effector for collecting frozen aliquots from an array of frozen samples in a plurality of containers has a coring bit for taking frozen sample cores from the frozen samples and a frozen sample core extraction system adapted to extract frozen sample cores from the frozen samples. A fill level detection system is adapted to detect the positions of the surfaces of the frozen samples. A processor is adapted to receive signals from the fill level detection system and use the signals and information concerning operation of the frozen sample core extraction system to determine at least one of the following: (a) the amount of material contained in a frozen sample core obtained by the coring bit; and (b) the number of frozen sample cores needed from a particular frozen sample to obtain a predetermined amount of material from that frozen sample.

  • Publication number: 20160314474
    Abstract: Disclosed are geo-analytical systems and methods for providing assessments of whether articles purporting to be a genuine specimen authorized by a source are indeed genuine. Genuine specimens of the product from the source have affixed thereto an identifier unique amongst genuine such products and readable by a mobile device. A mobile device may collect the identifier and send it to a server along with the location where it was collected. The server maintains a history of collections of the identifier. The history may include information such as a date and/or time of each collection. The collection history is analyzed to produce an assessment of the likelihood the article is a genuine specimen by estimating the likelihood the history corresponds to a genuine article. The assessment is sent to the mobile device for presentation to a user.
