    Abstract: A fluid flow control device adapted to control the flow of fluid from a fluid container to a fluid extraction device without the need for a needle. The fluid flow control device includes a connector element and a container insert member which define a fluid channel. A compressible valve element is disposed in the fluid channel of the connector element and the container insert member. The valve element includes a plug and shaft and resiliently prevents the flow of fluid by forming a fluid seal in the fluid channel. The valve element may be operationally engaged by the fluid extraction device thereby breaking the fluid seal and allowing the fluid to flow from the container to the fluid extraction device.
