Patent
Becton Dickinson | Date: 2017-02-01

A syringe assembly including a syringe barrel defining a chamber having a stopper therein is disclosed. The syringe assembly includes a plunger rod associated with the stopper, the plunger rod includes an outer sleeve having a distal end interconnected to the stopper and a sidewall portion defining an opening therein. The plunder rod also includes an inner sleeve disposed within the outer sleeve including a longitudinally extending track in alignment with the opening in the outer sleeve. The inner sleeve is adapted for telescopic movement with respect to the outer sleeve. The plunger rod also includes a spring mounted in association with the inner sleeve. The syringe assembly further includes a holding mechanism associated with the plunger rod and configured for cooperation with the inner and outer sleeves. Relative movement between the inner and outer sleeves causes the plunger rod to transition from a collapsed position to an extended position.

A shielding needle assembly is provided with a hub having a needle cannula with a puncture tip extending from a forward end thereof, and a shield member in telescoping association with the hub. A drive member biases the hub and the shield member away from each other for relative telescopic movement between a first position in which the puncture tip extends from a forward end of the shield member, and a second position in which the puncture tip is encompassed within the shield member. A pivoting lever maintains the hub and the shield member in the first position against the bias of the drive member with the needle cannula exposed for use. The lever is pivotable during contact with a patients skin surface such as during venipuncture, thereby releasing the hub and the shield member from the first position and permitting the drive member to bias the hub and the shield member toward the second position.

A system for the closed transfer of fluids that provides substantially leak-proof sealing and pressure equalization during engagement of a cannula with a vial, during transfer of a substance from a vial chamber to a barrel chamber via the cannula, and during disengagement of the cannula from the vial is disclosed. The leak-proof sealing of the system substantially prevents leakage of both air and liquid during use of the system. The system of the present disclosure also permits pressure equalization between a vial and the system when the system is attached to the vial. The system is compatible with a needle and syringe assembly for accessing a medication contained within a vial for administering the medication to a patient.

An apparatus is disclosed for storing and changing needles for a medicament delivery device having a medicament container, including a fixed mount for connecting the apparatus with the medicament delivery device, a needle holder displaceable along a circuitous path and connecting a plurality of needles displaceably disposed thereon, and a guide member for guiding displacement of the needle holder, the guide member being disposed about the fixed mount. The apparatus also includes a user interface rotatably disposed about the fixed mount and having at least one internal engaging structure for displacing the needle holder along the circuitous path.


The present application relates to an IV catheter assembly (10) having a stationary septum actuator (140) and a blood control septum (150), wherein the blood control septum is configured to slide within a catheter adapter (20) of the IV catheter assembly between a compressed state and an uncompressed state. When in the compressed state, a slit (154) of the blood control septum is opened and the septum comprises stored compressive potential energy. When the septum is released from the compressed state, the stored compressive potential energy is release and the blood control septum is restored to its original shape, thereby dosing the septums slit.


A label and labeling system for identifying the volume of a specimen within a specimen collection container are disclosed. The system includes providing a specimen collection container having an open top end, a closed bottom end, and a sidewall extending therebetween forming an interior adapted for receiving a specimen therein. The specimen collection container also includes a label having a label body disposed over at least a portion of the sidewall, in visual alignment with a colored background. At least one of the sidewall of the specimen collection container and the label body have printing disposed thereon having a color that is substantially identical to the colored background against which the specimen collection container will be viewed. At least one of the sidewall of the specimen collection container and the label body may have colorless indicia having a surface enhancement feature for providing visual distinction.

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.

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.
