  • Patent number: 4946072
    Abstract: An apparatus is disclosed which dispenses a metered quantity of a liquid. The apparatus uses a roller and base pad to form a nip which receives a dispensing leg of a container. Movement of the roller along the base pad causes liquid within the dispensing leg to be dispensed through a pressure responsive valve. The roller travels along a D-shaped path, the straight portion of the path is the nip forming portion. The apparatus operates in response to an object reflecting a beam of electromagnetic energy in the form of infrared light. A container is also disclosed which has a housing, preferably cardboard, and an envelope of flexible plastic contained therein. The envelope holds the liquid and the dispensing leg is accessed through a tear-away opening in the cardboard housing.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 4474572
    Abstract: An implanting device for implanting pellets and like subcutaneously or intramuscularly in animals is described which utilizes means for indexing an implant magazine having a plurality of pellet-containing stations therein and means for automatically retracting a needle from about an implant charge to deposit the pellets in an animal. The implant magazine is indexed for sequential applications automatically as the retraction mechanism is cocked. Additionally, means for automatically ejecting a spent or empty implant cartridge are provided to prevent false deposition of implants. An implant cartridge having open channels containing implants can be utilized with the implanting device, the channels having means thereon for increasing the size of the channel during the implanting step to substantially eliminate the crushing or breaking of pellets as they are expelled from the cartridge. Alignment and stabilization means for the implant magazine and the implanting device also are provided.
