A container assembly (10) and method for storing, treating, transporting and stabilizing a biological sample includes a container (12), a closure member (14) and a sample holder (16) removably received in the container (12). The sample holder (16) can be a platform-like device dimensioned to be supported on a ledge (36) formed in the side wall (18) of the container (12). The sample holder (16) includes a central cavity (78) for receiving the sample (108) and immersing the sample (108) in the stabilizing agent in the container (12). The closure member (14) includes a body member (52) to close the top end of the central cavity (78) of the sample holder (16) and to limit movement of the sample holder (16) in the container (12). In another embodiment, the sample holder (16) has a closure cap (14) for closing the open top end of the cavity (78). The container (12) includes a liquid reagent (106) in an amount sufficient to treat the biological sample (108).

A safety shield system for a needle cannula (34) of a pen needle injector (20) or a similar device, wherein the safety shield may be retracted from a first position enclosing the needle cannula to a second position wherein the end of the needle cannula (34) is exposed for injection. The improved safety shield system of this invention permits retraction of the safety shield (22) during use, but extends the shield to enclose the needle cannula (34) in a locked position following use. Where the safety shield system of this invention is utilized with a pen needle injector (20) having a double ended needle cannula (34) mounted in a hub (40) received on the open end of the pen needle injector, the assembly can be safely disposed of by removing the safety shield assembly and the needle cannula hub assembly and storing the assembly in the cup-shaped cap (24) with the exposed end of the needle cannula safety enclosed within the cap. The cap also includes internal radial ribs (56) which prevent retraction of the shield prior to removal of the cap, thereby preventing inadvertent piercing of the cap during assembly of the safety shield assembly on the pen needle injector.

A needle assembly includes a transparent or translucent housing with a fluid inlet end, a fluid outlet end, a flashback chamber, and a venting mechanism therebetween. Substantially axially aligned inlet and outlet cannulas extend from the housing and communicate with the chamber. A sealable sleeve covers the external end of the outlet cannula. Relative volumes of the cannulas, the chamber, and the sleeve are selected to provide rapid reliable flashback indicative of venous entry with an internal vent positioned within the housing so as to divide the interior into first and second chambers, with the second chamber being adapted to maintain a negative pressure therein relative to the external environment so as to inhibit leakage of blood from the needle on withdrawal from the patient.

A vascular access device within an external environment may include a body and a septum at least partially housed within the body. Septum may at least substantially seal a lumen extending through the body. The septum may further include at least a first and a second material. At least one of the materials of the septum may be selected or adapted to resist tearing of the septum.

A pen needle outer cover (10) has a molded plastic distal cover (20), and a molded plastic proximal cover (22) in place of the conventional paper-foil label. The proximal cover (22) may be snap-fit over the opening of the distal cover (20). A user-separable section (26) with a finger pull tab (32) is defined by a reduced-thickness membrane (24), which functions as a tear line to allow that section (26) to at least partially separate from the proximal cover (22). A living hinge (27) may be provided to keep the user-separable section (26) from completely separating from the proximal cover (22). The finger pull tab (32) may be configured to enable re-covering of a pen needle (30) that is still within the outer cover (10).

A biological fluid collection device includes a collection module and an outer housing. The collection module includes a housing comprising a first end having a sample introduction opening, a second end having a sample dispensing opening, and a passageway extending between the sample introduction opening and the sample dispensing opening. A mixing chamber and a holding chamber are in fluid communication with the passageway such that a sample introduced into the sample introduction opening passes through the mixing chamber and subsequently into the holding chamber. The biological fluid collection device further includes a closure covering the first end, a cap covering the second end and including a vented plug, and an activation member adapted to force a sample contained in the holding chamber out of the sample dispensing opening. The collection module is positioned inside of the outer housing and the closure closes the open end of the outer housing.

[0099] Inserts can be formed with elution characteristics to cause the inserts to elute an antimicrobial agent when subject to a fluid within a medical device. An insert can be formed with a desired geometry to allow the insert to be compression fit within a medical device to prevent the insert from moving or becoming dislodged once inserted into the medical device. The material may also be hygroscopic so that the insert swells when subject to a fluid thereby enhancing the compression fit of the device within the medical device. In some cases, the material can be reinforced using an internal structure.

A fluid transfer device (10) includes a first portion (12) having a closed end (18) and an open end (20). The first portion (12) includes a first connector (22) configured to be connected to a first container (26) and including a cannula (24). The fluid transfer device (10) includes a second portion (14) having a closed end (30) and an open end (28). The open end (20) of the first portion (12) extends at least partially into the open end (28) of the second portion (14). The second portion (14) includes a second connector (32) configured to be connected to a second container (36) and a third connector (34) spaced apart from the second connector (32). At least a portion of the first portion (12) is axially and rotationally movable with respect to at least a portion of the second portion (14) from a first position in which the first connector (22) is aligned with the second connector (32) to a second position in which the first connector (22) is aligned with the third connector (34).

A fluid transfer system includes a container having a body having a sidewall extending between an open top end and a bottom end along a central axis to define an interior cavity, and at least one protrusion extending from an interior portion of the sidewall into the interior cavity. The system further including a connector configured for receipt within the interior cavity. The connector having a body having a distal end, a proximal end, and a sidewall extending between the distal end and the proximal end and defining a fluid passageway therethrough, and a locking arrangement provided on at least a portion of an inner member of the connector and accessible through at least a portion of an outer member of the connector. The locking arrangement is configured for cooperating with the at least one protrusion to prevent rotation of the inner member relative to the outer member.
