  • Publication number: 20210402097
    Abstract: Parenteral delivery of a beneficial agent using an auto-injector configured for reduction of forces acting on a primary container for the beneficial agent during activation of the auto-injector. The primary container may be disposed within a pressure chamber of the auto-injector such that an increased pressure within the pressure chamber during activation is applied to a stopper of the primary container and an external surface of a sidewall of the primary container. In turn, a pressure differential between a containment volume of the primary container and the pressure chamber may be reduced or eliminated. In turn, forces acing on the primary container in response to the pressure increase in the pressure container may be reduced or eliminated. Configurations are also provided for improved relative movement between a stopper and a sidewall of the primary container for more reliable injection.

  • Publication number: 20160321039
    Abstract: Technology mapping onto code fragments and related concepts are disclosed. Program descriptions are obtained in a high-level language. One or more intrinsic libraries containing modules are obtained. The modules correspond to sections of code intended for execution on the special purpose hardware. The high-level program description is analyzed to determine locations of one or more cuts within the program. The cuts represent portions of the high-level code that are eligible for replacement by one or more modules from intrinsic libraries. A matching process is used to find modules that are suitable replacements for the high level code. Once the replacements are made, additional verification and/or validation are performed by compiler checking and/or execution tests.

  • Patent number: 8177084
    Abstract: A pressure-responsive container assembly and elastically-deformable penetrable cap is provided. Embodiments of the penetrable cap of the present invention include, but are not limited to: an annular sealing portion for engaging an inner surface of a container, a substantially rigid portion extending radially inward from the annular sealing portion; a flexible transition portion extending radially inward from the substantially rigid portion; and a penetrable portion extending radially inward from the transition portion for closing the opening defined by the container. Thus, embodiments of the present invention may thus allow the penetrable portion to elastically deform about the transition portion to a generally convex shape so as to exert a radially outward force that may be transmitted by the substantially rigid portion to the annular sealing portion so as to reinforce a fluid-tight seal between the annular sealing portion and the inner surface of the container.
