  • Patent number: 8403176
    Abstract: The present invention relates to packaging materials for ophthalmic solutions. Difficulties with water loss in standard ophthalmic bottles are overcome in the controlled drop dispensing container of the present invention. This controlled drop dispensing container comprises a dispensing tip, a laminate tube 15, and a shoulder connecting the laminate tube 15 to the dispensing tip 7. The dispensing tip 7 comprises an inner orifice having a diameter sufficiently small to restrict flow of liquid contents of the tube to the desired level, an outer orifice 9 having a diameter sufficiently large to form a drop of the desired size from the liquid contents of the tube, where fluid communication exists between the inner orifice and the outer orifice 9. The laminate tube 15 comprises an outer polymeric layer 10, an optional first tie layer 11, a middle barrier layer 12, an optional second tie layer 13, an inner polymeric layer 14.

  • Patent number: 7641637
    Abstract: A controlled volume injection/aspiration device includes a syringe having a body for containing a medicament, a needle and a piston slidably disposed within the body. A shell is provided for receiving the syringe body and a plunger rack is disposed within the shell. A manually operated control is disposed in an operative relationship with the plunger rack for moving the plunger rack in a stepwise forward direction causing the piston to eject discrete doses of medication from the syringe body through the needle. The manual operated control is also operative for moving the piston in a stepwise reverse direction causing the piston to aspirate fluid into the syringe body through the needle.
