  • Patent number: 7494479
    Abstract: A hypodermic syringe employing a plunger slidably disposed within a barrel. The plunger has a mounting hole extending through the seal end thereof to receive a mandrel. The mandrel has a flexible flange to be releasably engaged with the plunger. A spring element withdraws the mandrel into a cavity within the plunger upon full extension of the plunger within the barrel. The barrel includes a hub retainer at the forward end thereof and a needle hub retained therein the mandrel includes barbed tines with surfaces having axes of the conical surfaces that are displaced from one another such that movement of the tines toward one another also brings the axes closer. A catch associated with the back end of the spring element coupled with the mandrel at the other end cooperates with shoulders on smooth surfaces within the cavities to retain tension within the bungee.

  • Patent number: 7128730
    Abstract: A system for delivery of therapeutic and/or diagnostic agents into a living body includes a port assembly having a cannula extending from the mounting side, a port opening away from the mounting side and a resilient barrier between the port and the cannula. An access hub includes a connector positionable at the port for opening the resilient barrier. The access hub is movable in the port assembly, is engaged therewith through a resilient ring coupling and forms a seal with the resilient barrier, reducing the amount of volume to be primed. Inserters, both disposable and reusable, include the cannula insertion member as part of the assembly. A spring loaded port driver is operatively mounted within the housing with movement controlled by a latch. The driver includes a seat for receipt of a port assembly. The cannula insertion member is nonremovably fixed in a socket in the port driver in the disposable assembly.

  • Patent number: 6939330
    Abstract: An inserter having a housing, a syringe carriage slidably mounted within the housing and a syringe socket defined within the syringe carriage. The syringe carriage is able to assume a cocked position and an extended position with the latter being the position for injection. A spring biases the syringe carriage to the extended position and a latch selectively retains the syringe carriage in the cocked position.
