  • Patent number: 9833783
    Abstract: A fluid retainer cartridge assembly is disclosed. The fluid retainer cartridge assembly includes a base portion and a cap portion. The base portion defines a plurality of implement-receiving channels. The cap portion is removably-connected to the base portion. The cap portion defines a fluid-receiving void that is fluidly-divided into an upstream fluid-receiving void and a downstream fluid-receiving void by a flange of the base portion that is disposed within the fluid-receiving void of the cap portion. The upstream fluid-receiving void is in fluid communication with the downstream fluid-receiving void by a fluid-flow passage formed by the flange of the base portion. A method is also disclosed.
