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.

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.

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 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 stopper adapted for attachment with a plunger rod for use within a syringe barrel is disclosed. The stopper includes a main body defining an open rearward end and a closed front end. The open rearward end is adapted to receive a front forward end attachment portion of the plunger rod. The stopper also includes a core member integrally formed with the main body adjacent the closed front end. The core member includes a nose portion having a conical tip configured for entering an outlet opening of the syringe barrel. The closed front end of the stopper has a profile configured to cooperate with an internal surface of the syringe barrel wall to prevent reflux and reduce dead space within the barrel.

A device (10) for delivering a substance into the skin of a patient includes a body (12) and a skin penetrating device (14) having at least one skin penetrating member, such as a microneedle. The body (12) includes an internal cavity (22) and a device (48, 92, 148, 156) for indicating the delivery of a sufficient amount of the substance to the patient and for producing a dispensing pressure to dispense and deliver the substance from the cavity. The indicating device is visible from the exterior of the delivery device. In some embodiments, the indicating device is an elastic expandable diaphragm which, when the cavity is filled with a substance, creates the dispensing pressure.


An infusion set has an adhesively secured main hub, and a slidable top cover, needle hub and angled or cantilevered needle that can be used for performing an intradermal needle insertion precisely targeting the upper 3 mm of skin surface, for example, one that substantially duplicates the Mantoux insertion technique, for injecting into the intradermal layers of skin, while maintaining a degree of comfort to the user. By sliding the top cover, the cantilevered needle is loaded and released or the angled needle is slid into an insertion site, while flexible arms and adhesive are used to stretch and/or flatten a skin surface, or otherwise create skin tension, at the insertion site.
