  • Patent number: 10926025
    Abstract: Devices and methods for filling a medicament cartridge of a pump, including a user-wearable, ambulatory infusion pump. A device for supporting a medicament cartridge can comprise a body portion resembling a tray, with recesses disposed therein to support one or more of a cartridge body, cartridge tubing, interconnect fitting, and vial adapter. The recesses of the tray may be shaped to correspond to that component intended to be placed in its respective recess so to provide a visual indication to a user how to couple and align the various components necessary to fill the cartridge.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 7648888
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of splitting apart a substrate of two adjoining wafers defining between them a cleavage plane, by bringing each substrate into a substrate-receiving space; and clamping first and second jaw portions onto each substrate in such a manner as to hold each substrate and urge apart the two wafers of each substrate by co-operation between the shapes of housings in first and second portions of the two jaws, respectively. The invention also relates to a splitting method that includes bringing each substrate into a substrate-reception space; clamping together separator portions onto each substrate so as to split apart the two wafers of each substrate; and clamping the split-apart substrate wafers so as to hold the wafers together. An automated system for processing multiple substrates is also provided.

  • Patent number: 7017570
    Abstract: The invention provides an apparatus for splitting a substrate apart, the substrate comprising two adjoining wafers defining between them a cleavage plane, the apparatus being characterized in that it comprises: means for feeding splitter means with a plurality of substrates disposed in a substrate-storage direction; splitter means for splitting apart wafers of the substrates, the splitter means comprising moving jaws; and means for performing controlled displacement of certain substrate wafers after they have been split apart in a direction that is substantially parallel to the substrate-storage direction, whereby the apparatus is suitable for splitting apart the plurality of substrates. The invention also provides an associated splitting method.
