Abstract: In some embodiments, a housing can define a reservoir. A lower cap can be coupled to the housing and define an outlet, and an upper cap can be coupled to the housing and can define an inlet. The upper cap can include an extending portion extending laterally a distance beyond an outermost extending portion of the lower cap relative to a central axis of the housing such that, when the lower cap and the extending portion of the upper cap contact a horizontal surface, the central axis of the housing is transverse to the surface and a sealing member is configured to sealingly engage a sealing surface of a valve seat prior to a liquid fluid level within a reservoir decreasing below a minimum threshold fluid level.

Abstract: A liquid transfer device includes a monolithic trifurcated connector body defining a barrel at a first end thereof, a single IV spike at a second end thereof and a vial adapter lumen at a third end thereof. An IV port is connected to the barrel. The single IV spike has a first IV spike lumen fluidly connected at a proximal end thereof with only the vial adapter lumen via the trifurcated connector body and a second IV spike lumen fluidly connected at a proximal end thereof with only the IV port via the trifurcated connector body, thereby separating fluid communication between the vial adapter and the single IV spike from fluid communication between the IV port and the single IV spike.
