  • Patent number: 10182753
    Abstract: A blood sampling device useful for collecting a blood sample from a separate vascular access device is described herein. The blood sampling device includes a body shaped and sized for partial insertion into a separate vascular access device. The body includes a reservoir defined within the body, which has an internal volume sufficient to contain enough blood for use in a diagnostic blood test. The body also includes a gas permeable vent disposed on the body, in which the gas permeable vent is in gaseous communication with the reservoir. When connected to a separate vascular access device the blood sampling device collects a blood sample as blood flows into the reservoir from the separate vascular access device and as gases pass out the reservoir via the gas permeable vent.

  • Patent number: 9750922
    Abstract: A handheld antiseptic dispensing applicator device having a reservoir for storing an antiseptic agent, the reservoir being coupled to an applicator pad, and a defeatable membrane or barrier being interposed between the reservoir and the applicator pad. Embodiments of the device comprise a squeezable reservoir, wherein the internal hydraulic pressure of the squeezable reservoir is increased via user applied forces to thereby defeat the membrane releasing the antiseptic agent contained therein which is then absorbed by the applicator pad. The defeatable barrier or membrane is also removable or may be defeated in connection with other mechanisms according to various embodiments.
