CONTAINER FOR STORING MEDICAL INJECTION NEEDLES Application filed November 5, 1925. Serial No. 67,14;3.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, OTTO HAssnLMANN, a German citizen, and residing at Wiesbaden, Germany, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Container for Storing Medical Injection Needles (for which I have filed an application in Germany on 5th November, 1924, Patent -No. 418,1 l9), of

which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improved container for storing medical 11118611011 needles,

of the known kind in which a plurality of needles are insertedwith oppositely directed points.

comprises an integral framing having. two

According to the invention, the container end rings and a middle guiding ring, in which the needles are inserted and together with which they can be sterilized, while on one of said end rings two caps are screwed from opposite sides, whereby the container is closed and divided into a septic andinto an aseptic compartment for a separate reception therein of used and of fresh sterilized needles respectively.

The accompanying drawlng illustrates the improved container: Fig. 1 is a longitudinal section of the same on the line 11 of Fig. 2, which is a section on the line 2+2 of Fig. 1 seen in the direction of arrow.

The improved container comprises an integral framing having two end rings a, 0 and a middle guiding ring 6. The end rings a, 0 have each a plurality of, for instance four as shown, longitudinal bo'ringsa, a respectively therein, of which those in one ring are arranged in staggered position with reference to those in the other ring, while the middle guiding ring I) is provided with double the number of corresponding longi tudinal borings bf coinciding with those in the end rings.

, The injection needles w, a?" to be stored in the container can beinserted with oppositely directed points from both ends of the 4 framing, the borings in said rings being provided with countersunk introduction ends. be sterilized together with the framing.

One of said end rings, for instance a, is

The used and fresh sterilized needles can' thus not touch each other, and the small vwater drops left after completed sterilization in the countersunk introduction ends of the ring borings prevent by their 00- and adhesion a transmission o f-impurities from v the usedto the still fresh sterilized needles in the. container.

What I claim, is: A container for storing medical injection needles, comprising, in combination, an inte- 7 gral framingv having two end rings and a middle guiding ring, and two closing caps screwed on one of said end rings from opposite sides thereby dividing the container into two separate compartments, said rings hav- 7 ing longitudinal borings with countersunk introduction ends therein of which those in; one endring are arranged in staggered position with reference to those in the other end ring, substantially as and for the pur- S0 pose set forth. i

In testlmony whereof I havehereunto set my hand. V i


The needles, being inserted, can then i
