Aug. 10, 1943. H. N. PERELsoN FLUIDl DISPENSER Filed June 13, 1942 INVENTOR Patented ug. 10, 1943 UNITED STATES. gPf-ilENioFF-1C11,5, FLUID 'DISPENSER y l Y Harold N. Perelson, Hluntingtonolfarlr, U Appiiatnnrune 13,194,2,svria1Na dass? Y aolaims. (c1. cisl-47) My invention relates to improvements in fluid dispensers for vials or other containers of-multiple doses of a therapeutic or similar solution, such dispenser being of Vthe-type disclosed in my application ber 358,057, filed September 24, 1940, now Patent No. 2,289,677, dated July 14, 1942.

Administration of doses of therapeutic vsub-` stances and the like from multiple doseV containers in usualpractice involvesy the use and handling of twoneedles in combinationwith the syringe; a large bore needlerfor extraction of the iiuid` from the container and the substitution of a fine needle therefor for the injection `opera.- tion. Y Use of thev large bore needle permits charg-y ing the syringe without unduev loss of time, whereas the fine boreneedleis desirable Vfori adminis# y tration of the dose.

It is apparent that handling -of two doubles the necessity Yfor exercising precautions requisite for antiseptic operation of the' combination as a therapeutic instrument'. y

An objectfoi the present invention is to provide a dispenser of the Ycharacter described, wherein operativev movement ofrthe dispenser needle is precisely 'governed to'provide for substantially complete utilization ofA the container contents without the exercise of "precisional manipulationvby the operator.V Y fr Y A further object is to provide a closure for the container and mounting for the needle suincientlyelastic to'insu're easy operation together with durable" qualities aiording repetitional intrusion into and retraction of the needle 'from theV container interior and conj'ointlyV embody suicient rigidity of structure to provide the requisite rmness lnecessary to hold the needle in place during manipulation Yof the attached syringe. Y 1

Another objectr is to provide a dispenser such as described wherein the body portion; made of for U. SLetters Patent Serial Numv -avial. l p r Figure 2 isan enlarged top plan view. ofomy..V

needles n f made bythe needle being closed due tojjthe h elastic material such as rubber, embodies not only the requisites above dened but in addition is devised to afford a disposition of. parts as to relative all thickness and arrangement such as molding arts, for example, the removal of forms without mutilation of the product.

-With the above and other objects in View the derstood that various changes in form, propor tion, size and minor details of construction withconforms to the practical requirements of the any of the advantages of the invention.

the chamber to gain access to the contentsof the bottle D. The needle is exposed for connection with Aa syringeY E whereby the contents of. the"A bottle may be'withdrawnl" Normally thesto'pper supports the needle so that-th Vpoint liesjwithin the chamber and thestopper willprovidea tight closure for therbottle,a .punctur'e previously elasticity of the material. if', f

' "Onex fof the: I vadvantageous 'features `onv the 1 present invention'is'that of reinforcingftheouter i end of the stopper byimeans-of an integral'margifY nal ange l 'which extends outwardlyfrom ando` in the present instance surroundsthe4 outerwall 2 of the stopper;` `The ilange'l provides in ,effecty a circumferentia'l'elastic force radially'active 'Ito return'the'outerlwall -2 to its normal position,v j while the hub-3 'of the =needle C is' gripped-and.

held in an apertured boss 4 formed at the center of the wall.

' Shoulders 5 and 6 onthehub together with the boss constitute a means for holding the needle within chamber C and normally spaced inwardly l from the inner wall 1 of the stopper, it being"v Y 'noted that the chamber B Aextends between theV walls 2 and 1. This holding means 4also holds the needle against being forced through the outer wall so that when it is depressed the outer wall will stretch or yield inwardly as shown in Figure A "4 and allow the point of the needle to penetrate the inner wall "L In this connection it should beV lnoted thatras another improvement the stopper t A is provided on the wall of the chamber B with Y .an annular stop shoulder 8 adapted to engage the Y shoulder E on the hub of the needle to limit the inward thrust of the needle as shown in Figure 4. This feature providing for relatively precise adjustment ofthe point end of the needle as just penetrative of the inner Wall 'I for substantially complete extraction of the .container contents.

It should also be 'noted that the stopper is formed with. airA enlarged head-portion. 9 in which isformedithe enlarged outerv end ofthe chamber B in such manner that the walls of Y the head also the flange I are thicker than ari-- nular portions of theV outer Wall 2 which sur-V rounds the boss 4, whereby the outer end'of thestopper will be comparatively rigid while the .WallY 2 is highly elastic and may be stretched inwardly to allow the needle to penetrate-theinner'wall T11 porting said needle on said outer end wall with its point normally spaced outwardly from and subject to penetrating said inner wall when the needle is pushed inwardly and the outer Wall responsively yields inwardly, a stop shoulder on said needle and a stop shoulder on said stopper within said chamber Vinterrnediately positioned between said inner and outer walls for limiting the inward thrust of said needle.
