  • Publication number: 20190216380
    Abstract: A device for obtaining a biological sample, such as a capillary blood collection device, that has the ability to lance and squeeze the finger, collect the sample, stabilize the sample, and subsequently dispense the sample in a controlled manner is disclosed. The device also simplifies and streamlines the capillary blood collection by eliminating workflow variabilities which are typically associated with low sample quality including hemolysis and micro-clots.

  • Publication number: 20190133509
    Abstract: A specimen transfer device adapted to receive a blood sample is disclosed. The specimen transfer device includes a housing and an actuation member. A deformable material is disposed within the housing and is deformable from an initial position in which the material is adapted to hold the sample to a deformed position in which at least a portion of the sample is released from the material. A viscoelastic member is disposed within the housing between the material and the housing and between the material and the actuation member. The viscoelastic member is engaged with the actuation member and the material such that movement of the actuation member from a first position to a second position deforms the material from the initial position to the deformed position.

  • Publication number: 20180296440
    Abstract: A connection system for connecting a first medical device component to a second medical device component is disclosed. The connection system of the present disclosure provides for quick and intuitive coupling and decoupling of two opposing medical device components through the use of a connection path and a disconnection path, the connection path being distinct from the disconnection path. Furthermore, the connection system of the present disclosure provides audible and tactile connection feedback through the use of elastically deformable connection elements.

  • Patent number: 10052259
    Abstract: A system includes a needle hub having a proximal end and a distal end. The proximal end of the needle hub has a connection portion configured to receive a first container. The system further includes a cannula received by the needle hub with the cannula having a proximal end and a distal end and a cannula seal having a resilient sleeve enclosing at least a portion of the cannula. The system also includes a vial adapter configured to be attached to a second container with the vial adapter having a vial seal that is configured to engage the cannula seal. The cannula seal has a first position where the cannula seal encloses the distal end of the cannula and a second position where the cannula seal is retracted to expose the distal end of the cannula.

  • Publication number: 20180162578
    Abstract: A device for transferring fluids includes a piercing member having a distal end and a proximal end and defines a longitudinal fluid channel. An opening is positioned at the distal end of the piercing member with the opening in fluid communication with the longitudinal fluid channel. Further, a sleeve having a proximal end and a distal end includes an extended position where the sleeve surrounds the piercing member and a retracted position where the sleeve is retracted from the distal end of the piercing member. The sleeve defines an opening at the distal end of the sleeve with a gap defined between the retractable sleeve and the piercing member.

  • Patent number: 9873117
    Abstract: A biological fluid collection device includes a collection module and an outer housing. The collection module includes a housing comprising a first end having a sample introduction opening, a second end having a sample dispensing opening, and a passageway extending between the sample introduction opening and the sample dispensing opening. A mixing chamber and a holding chamber are in fluid communication with the passageway such that a sample introduced into the sample introduction opening passes through the mixing chamber and subsequently into the holding chamber. The biological fluid collection device further includes a closure covering the first end, a cap covering the second end and including a vented plug, and an activation member adapted to force a sample contained in the holding chamber out of the sample dispensing opening. The collection module is positioned inside of the outer housing and the closure closes the open end of the outer housing.

  • Publication number: 20170203045
    Abstract: A stopper includes a main body portion defining an open rearward end configured to receive the plunger rod, an engagement portion provided along an inner circumference of the main body portion configured to engage at least a top portion of the plunger rod, a closed front end forming a flexible roof, and a first perimetrical skirt extending around an outer circumference of the main body portion toward the closed front end of the main body portion. When fluid pressure is increased inside the syringe barrel during an injection, the flexible roof expands in a radial direction toward an inner wall of the syringe barrel, the first perimetrical skirt is forced against the inner wall of the syringe barrel, and an engagement between the plunger rod and the engagement portion forces the main body portion to expand in the radial direction toward the inner wall of the syringe barrel.

  • Publication number: 20170143587
    Abstract: A system for the closed transfer of fluids that provides substantially leak-proof sealing and pressure equalization during engagement of a cannula with a vial, during transfer of a substance from a vial chamber to a barrel chamber via the cannula, and during disengagement of the cannula from the vial is disclosed. The leak-proof sealing of the system substantially prevents leakage of both air and liquid during use of the system. The system of the present disclosure also permits pressure equalization between a vial and the system when the system is attached to the vial. The system is compatible with a needle and syringe assembly for accessing a medication contained within a vial for administering the medication to a patient.

  • Publication number: 20170059550
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a biological fluid collection device, such as a blood collection device, that is adapted to receive a multi-component blood sample having a cellular portion and a plasma portion and quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively separate the plasma portion from the sample. A pressure gradient can be applied across a separation member to facilitate movement of the plasma portion ahead of the cellular portion. The present disclosure allows for both passive and active plasma separation and dispensing.
