  • Patent number: 11065395
    Abstract: A needle guard device mountable to a pre-filled syringe in its ready-to-fill state. The device includes a device shield interconnected to a lock collar with flexible member and biased to move relative to the lock collar. The lock collar interfaces with the syringe neck to attach the device to the syringe. As the device shield moves proximally, rotation arms of the lock collar interact with angled cutouts in the device shield, causing the device shield to rotate relative to the lock collar and disengaging one or more keys on the device shield from one or more keyways in the lock collar triggering the device shield to move from a first configuration in which the device shield is retractable to expose a syringe sharp to a second configuration in which the device shield is fixedly positioned to cover the syringe sharp.

  • Patent number: 10188804
    Abstract: A needle guard device mountable to a pre-filled syringe in its ready-to-fill state. The device includes a lock collar and a device shield biased to move relative to the lock collar. The lock collar interfaces with the syringe neck to attach the device to the syringe. With the removal of a needle shield assembly comprising rigid and soft needle shields, the lock collar and device shield are free to move proximally along the syringe neck and interact with a syringe step down area to activate the device. As the device moves proximally, retention arms of the device shield interact with the syringe step down, causing the arms to deflect radially outwards to disengage from the lock collar triggering the device shield to move from a first position to a second position.

  • Patent number: 10137238
    Abstract: A flip-open multi-pack assembly which contains a plurality of new pen needles via a rectangular or tube-shaped, hinged shell housing, wherein new pen needles are stored in a plurality of user accessible openings each having a sterility barrier formed by covers that cover the non-patient end of the openings where the new pen needles are contained. Used pen needles are returned and stored in openings accessible by rotatably opening the shell housing. One or more of the openings within first and second opposite ends of the housing shell include a slidable internal holder configured to releasably secure the inner shield of the new pen needle, and subsequently be pulled forward when the new pen needle is removed and locked at a forward position, to create an interior space, accessible from an opposite end when the hinged housing is opened, for a used pen needle to be inserted and stored.
