Description

Cradle with adjustable cover

The invention relates to a recording apparatus having an elongated outer receptacle for a receptacle, in particular a blood sampling tube, wherein the receiving container defines a container wall a receiving chamber and along a longitudinal axis a distance from each having a proximal and a distal end, and the container wall by a the accommodation chamber facing towards inner surface and one of which is averted outer surface is limited, with a needle carrier for a halterbare thereon needle assembly, in particular a double-ended needle, said needle carrier in the receiving chamber of the receiving container relatively towards this need, from a use position in the region of the proximal end side in toward the distal end is designed to move in a disposal position, with a first encryption adjusting device for the needle carrier for, if necessary, shifting from the use position into the Disposal position, with a cover for the needle carrier halterbare needle assembly in the disposal position of the needle carrier.

From US 5,810,775 A a holding device for medical Blutprobenab- is Collection Tube become known, in which by means of a pivoting movement of the encryption adjusted circuit element relative to the receptacle, a reasonable in the receiving chamber arranged adjusting elements by provided on Nerschlusselement adjusting elements in the longitudinal axis direction toward the proximal end is, whereby the supported at the proximal end of the needle is moved back together with the exchanger needle assembly released from its clamping in the seat adjusting element and after release of the same by a biased spring element in the interior of the receiving device. Due to the pivoting movement of the closure element, a longitudinal adjustment of the adjustment element in this embodiment is on the one hand in the direction of the longitudinal axis and on the other hand after completion of triggering or unlocking the needle carrier circuit by adjusting the encryption of the interior of the receiving device, whereby contact of the operator is prevented with the needle assembly , A disadvantage of this embodiment is that the connection between the needle carrier and the adjustment element in the form of a clamping fit is very expensive accurately perform and, on the one hand to achieve a sufficient tightness for the acceptance process, and on the other hand not too high, the necessary triggering force for unlocking this connection to choose. In addition, a high risk of injury for the user of this recording apparatus still existed due to the spring bias of the needle carrier in case of accidental release of the clamping connection between the needle carrier and the adjustment element, caused by the rapid return of the needle into the interior.

Another receiving device for blood sampling devices is known from US 5,769,826 A and WO 98/41249 AI become known in which a pre-stressed by a spring needle carrier in the receptacle by a slide in the deployed position is maintained locked and after the intended detaching operation of the locking between the pusher and the needle carrier can be solved, whereby this is moved back due to the spring bias together with the needle assembly in the interior of the receiving device. The distal end of this recording device is formed, if necessary, closable by a pivotally mounted on the receiving container closure member. thereby, it is disadvantageous that, upon actuation of the slide and the resulting verbunde- NEN return movement jerky retracting the needle support, takes place due to the spring biasing force in the interior of which is not closed lid or closure element the risk of stick injury for the operating personnel is.

From the document US 5,407,436 A and WO 93/23098 Al, a receiving container having a holding device for a needle carrier and a double needle inserted therein has become known, wherein the equipped with the double needle needle holder automatically into the interior of the receptacle of the holder after release of a restraint device in the receiving chamber is retractable. The needle holder is held in place by fixing elements in an end portion of the receiving container, wherein a compressed and thereby pre-stressed spring is arranged between the end face side and the needle holder, which exerts on the needle holder has a parallel to the longitudinal axis of the receiving container directed force. By this force, the needle holder is pressed against the retaining lugs several fixing elements. The fixing elements are formed as finger-like directed parallel to the central longitudinal axis projections of the receptacle and are arranged so as to surround a disc-shaped part of the needle holder at its periphery and whose inward toward the central longitudinal axis of the retaining lugs of the extent about the edge of this disc-shaped part projecting the needle holder that the latter is held against the action of the spring. is used to trigger the automatic needle retraction, a tubular plunger, which has at its, to be inserted into the receptacle of the holder end an outward-facing, frustoconical bevel. When this plunger is now pushed into the holding device, so that the truncated cone-shaped chamfer is in operative connection with the holding noses which Fixierele- are elements with retaining lugs on the facing away from the longitudinal axis side pushed apart, thereby releasing the needle carrier and due to the spring force into the receiving chamber is adjusted. thereby, it is disadvantageous that for triggering a separate component is necessary and a one-handed operation thus is not possible.

Another removal device A is known from US 5,423,758 or WO 95/16389 AI become known, in which the sampling needle is held together with the needle carrier in an adjusting sleeve and surrounded by a further protective cover, so that the sampling needle is completely protected from the doffing operation. Between the needle carrier and the outer protective sheath, a spring device is disposed. The needle carrier is retained by a clamping fit in the adjusting sleeve, wherein intended for

Use, the adjusting sleeve is moved relatively with respect to the outer protective sheath and pretensioned spring means subsequently. At the same time it takes before an end of the sampling needle on the cover, in which case the intended reduction process can be performed. The spacings or stop limits are be- seen, arranged at the adjusting handle and the cooperating

matched protective sheath such that the spring means only as far biased for proper detaching operation that the interference fit of the needle carrier is not dissolved in the adjusting sleeve. In this position a mutual locking between the protective sleeve and the adjusting is done to a repeated drawing apart between DIE sen to be avoided. In the course of the removal process, the sliding of the adjusting handle is placed in a more distant by the protective covering position, said conditionally can be effected by this distancing a further relative displacement between the protective sleeve and the adjusting sleeve and so is done the interference fit of the needle carrier through the prestressed spring device, and by solve this interference fit occurs the return of the needle carrier in the interior of the adjusting sleeve. thereby, it is disadvantageous that a large number of adjustment processes between the individual components of the receiving device must be performed to ensure proper operation.

Furthermore, there are also embodiments, as described in the claims 69 and 70, borrowed possible, since this positions the cover in the disposal position of the Aufhahmevorrichtung in both directions in the direction of the longitudinal axis of the fuse element is kept. Thus, the cover can be acted upon by the further adjustment device with a higher spring force to achieve the same in the disposal position as a reliable adjustment. This is mainly for the arranged on the support arm locking elements important because they have to be adjusted to achieve the disposal position on the retaining elements of time to get into the disposal position.

Finally, a further development as characterized in claim 71, is advantageous because this pivoting or twisting about the longitudinal axis and in the disposal position is suppressed, and so a subsequent manipulation of a stop is provided. Thus a violation of the operating personnel and also reuse the entire recording device on the one hand be prevented with the already unlocked locking device.

By way of introduction it should be noted that to be provided in the various described embodiments the same parts with the same reference numbers or same component names, whereby the disclosures contained throughout the description can be applied analogously to the same parts with the same reference numbers or same component names. Also, the positions chosen for purposes of the description, such as top, bottom, side, etc., relate to the figure directly described and illustrated and are to be appropriately transferred to the new position when another position. Furthermore, individual features or combinations of features from the shown and described embodiments can in themselves represent independent solutions or inventive in itself. In Figs. 1 to 6 show a pickup apparatus 1 for a not shown in detail here receiving vessel such as a well-known blood sample tube, simplified illustration, and that an outer receptacle 2, an inserted therein cover member 3 and a needle carrier 4 with a generally double-ended cannula 5 comprises.

The receptacle 2 has an elongate space in shape and defines with a vessel wall 6, a receiving chamber 7. In the direction of a longitudinal axis 8, the receiving apparatus 1 and the receptacle 2 distance from each other a proximal end 9 and a distal end 10. The container wall 6 is limited by one of the receiving chamber 7 to--turned inner surface 11 and an outer surface thereof facing away 12th In this embodiment shown here, is one of the two ends - in the present embodiment, the distal end 10 is open and the other end - here the proximal end 9 - formed at least partially closed. The here partially closed proximal end 9 is formed partially closed by an end wall. 13

General is here pointed that the designation of the two ends 9, 10 relative to the patient is selected. Thus, the proximal end 9 faces the patient and the distal end 10 away from this.

In the embodiment shown in FIG. 1 deployed position of the needle carrier 4 and a thereto or halterbaren therein the needle assembly 14, which is formed in the present embodiment by the double-ended needle 5 protrudes one end of which is designed for insertion in a living being or an extraction vessel , beyond the end wall 13 to the facing away from the load receiving chamber 7 direction. The other end of the needle 5 protrudes over a partial region in the receiving chamber 7 of the receptacle 2, which is inserted in a known manner not shown in detail here Aufnahmegefaß, in particular a blood sampling tube in the receiving chamber 7 and the sealing device of the blood sampling tube of this end of the cannula 5 pierced may be, thus providing a connection through the needle 5 to the interior of the blood sampling tube manufactured are. Furthermore, the needle carrier 4 is relatively in the receiving chamber 7 of the receptacle 2 with respect to this, if necessary, designed to move from the position shown in FIG. 1 deployed position in the area of ​​the proximal end 9 in the direction of the distal end 10 in a disposal position shown in FIG. 2. For this purpose, a first adjustment device 15 is assigned for this, if necessary, shifting from the use position to the disposal position the needle carrier. 4 The cover 3 is in the Fig. 1 - the use position of the needle assembly 14 - arranged directly adjacent to the needle carrier 4 on the side facing away from the proximal end side 9 in the receiving chamber 7. Between the cover 3 and the receptacle 2 of the recording device 1 1 is further shown in Fig. Shown that, if necessary, detachable locking device 16 is disposed here with the cover member 3 is held relative to the housing container in the use position. Furthermore, a further adjusting device 17 is disposed between the needle carrier 4 and the cover 3 wherein the releasing of the locking device 16, the cover 3 by this further adjustment device 17 back in

Toward the distal end 10 of the receptacle is moved. 2

The needle carrier 4 is thus on the one hand on the end wall 13 side facing the first adjustment device 15 and the other hand on the cover 3 side facing assigned to the further adjustment device 17 and by the two adjusting devices 15,

17 in its position in the use position held positioned in the direction of the longitudinal axis. 8 The further adjustment device 17 is, as already described above, disposed between the needle carrier 4 and the cover 3, wherein the cover member 3 is supported relative to the housing container 2 in its position, if necessary, releasably in its position by the latching device sixteenth

Advantageously, the first adjusting device 15 and / or the further adjusting device 17 each formed by an elastically deformable spring element 18, 19, in particular a compression spring. These compression springs may be formed of different materials and with different deformation, and spring characteristics, in which can be used preferably spiral springs. Furthermore, it is advantageous if the additional adjusting device 17, starting from the needle carrier 4 out is conical widening to the cover 3, as this simplifies in FIG. 2. but regardless, it is also possible for the first and the further adjustment device 15 to form 17 by an integral component, as so, the assembly effort and the number of

Items can be reduced.

Due to the arrangement of the two adjusting devices 15, 17 of both the needle is trä- carrier 4 and the cover member 3 moved simultaneously from the use position to the disposal position after releasing the latching device sixteenth

The cover member 3 is formed in this embodiment by a formed in an aligned perpendicular to the longitudinal axis 8 of plane 20 in approximately disc shaped base body 21st

As already described above, the passes through the blood sampling tube, and thus the receiving chamber 7 facing towards the end of the needle 5, the cover 3 in the region of the longitudinal axis 8 in an opening 22. Furthermore, it is shown in simplified form in the FIG. 2 that, in the region of the opening 22 a can be a liquid wicking or female member 23 is arranged, which from the cannula 5 and the protective cover 24 shown arranged above and simplified can be penetrated. This member 23 serves to possible residues in the region of the needle 5 and at the protective sleeve 24, in particular drops of blood, during the relative displacement movement between the

Needle carrier 4 and the covering member 3 due to the adjusting device 17, receive or absorb to be able to avoid such a Syringe and a possible infection of the operator.

The locking device 16 comprises at least one, but preferably two diametrically opposed locking members 25 and cooperating recesses 26. In this exemplary embodiment, which is or the detent elements 25 are Grundköφer on the disc-shaped 21 of the cover 3, wherein the locking recesses are disposed in the vessel wall 6 of the receptacle 2 26 and these pass through for triggering the locking elements 25 from the outside of the receptacle. 2 To avoid unintentional release of the locking elements 25 of the locking recesses 26, it is advantageous if the or the catch elements 25 in the radial direction, starting from the inner surface 11 toward the outer surface 12 of the container wall 6 only partially protrude into the recesses 26th Thereby, the trigger path in the radial direction is reduced toward the longitudinal axis 8 and at the same time reduces the risk of making a wrong operation or inadvertent actuation. The one or more locking members 25 are resiliently connected, for example via a web with the disc-shaped Grundköφer 21 of the cover member. 3 The locking elements 25 project from the disc-shaped Grundköφer 21 in front in the direction of the needle carrier 4 by means of the resilient web.

Furthermore, at least one guide assembly 27 may be provided between the cover 3 and the inner surface 11 of the container wall 6 by means of the cover are adjusted 3 in an exclusive longitudinal movement in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 of the insert position to the disposal position in the region of the distal end can without thereby can be made to rotate about the longitudinal axis. 8 This guide arrangement 27 is formed by at least one depth in the vessel wall 6 and in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 extending guide groove 28 and at least one engaging in the guide groove 28 guide projection 29 on the cover member. 3 To achieve a tilt-free

Longitudinal adjustment in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8, it is advantageous when uniformly over the circumference of the receptacle 2 distributed plurality of guide grooves 28 are arranged, in which also engage a plurality of guide projections 29 of the cover member. 3 In a diametrically opposite arrangement of the latching devices 16, these are viewed in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 is arranged over the circumference of the receptacle 2 symmetrically between the guide grooves 28, as this on the one hand a proper triggering, and secondly an unhindered longitudinal displacement of the cover member 3 in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 inside the can be done receptacle second Furthermore, it is advantageous if a groove bottom of the guide groove 28, based on the longitudinal extension of the longitudinal axis 8 paral- lel runs to this.

The container wall 6 has in the aligned perpendicular to the longitudinal axis 8 of plane 20 an annular cross section with an outer diameter 30 of the Grundköφers 21 disc-shaped about an inner diameter 31 of the Aufnahmekam- mer 7 corresponds in the same plane or selected only slightly smaller , This ensures that on the one hand an unhindered longitudinal displacement of the cover member 3 can be made 8 within the receiving chamber 7 in the direction of the longitudinal axis and on the other hand also the receiving chamber 7 by the cover 3 through a large part of which is covered in the cross-sectional area.

The receiving vessel 2 is open in the region of the distal end and formed partly closed in the region of the proximal end 9 to the end wall. 13 Characterized a support of the excluded exerted by the adjusting device 15 pressure forces on the end wall 13 is possible in the area of ​​the proximal end. 9 Furthermore, the longitudinal axis 8 is arranged an opening 32 in the end wall 13 in the region, which corresponds in its cross-sectional dimension 33 in about one outer cross-sectional dimension 34 of the needle carrier. 4 Thus, a portion of the needle carrier 4 may as is best seen from Fig. 1, extend into the opening 32, whereby the insertion of the needle assembly 14, in particular the cannula

5, can be facilitated in the needle carrier. 4

Furthermore, in the end wall 13, a receiving space 35 for the first adjusting device 15 or the one-piece component formed by the adjustment devices 15, 17 is arranged. Characterized both the needle carrier in its stored, carried out in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 and the adjusting device 15 or the device formed by this thereof can be stored separately and mounted in a small space.

The needle carrier 4 is formed by a sleeve-like in about Tragköφer 36, at which in the aligned perpendicular to the longitudinal axis 8 of plane 20 at least one radially outwardly projecting this support element is arranged 37th This support member 37 is preferably formed continuously over the periphery and serves to ensure that the adjusting devices 15, 17 are supported on the mutually facing end portions thereto. It is however also possible to have multiple supporting element 37 distributed over the circumference on Tragköφer 36 to arrange. For better fixing in position of the needle carrier 4 relative to the adjustment devices 15, 17, it is advantageous if at least one of the end regions to the support member 37 is held stationary. This Monday expenses can in turn be reduced for final assembly. In one-piece construction of the adjusting device 15, 17 the support element 37 is arranged in a transition region thereof and supported at this einstücki- gene component. Is, as already described above, the additional adjusting device 17 and the formed, this part forming the one-piece member tapered toward the distal end 10, insertion of the needle carrier 4 with the arranged thereon support member up to the transition area is possible, in which case the support element 37 can be used accordingly between the turns of the adjusting device and mounted.

Furthermore (see Fig. 1) is known from Fig. 3 also can be seen that in the region of the opening 32 in the end wall 13 between the latter and projecting into the opening 32 part of the needle carrier 4, a twist 38 is arranged, which in the deployed position the Nadelträ- gers 4 is engaged and 2 and the needle carrier 4 prevents relative pivoting or rotation between the receptacle about the longitudinal axis. 8 This anti-rotation device 38 is formed in the present embodiment, by disposed at the Tragköφer flats 36 and in the area of ​​the opening 32 with corresponding against equal ausgebilde- th stop surfaces. As a result, a longitudinal movement of the needle carrier 4 in

possible, but prevented the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 of rotation about the longitudinal axis 8 in the deployed position.

. Furthermore, the Figure 1, 2 and 4 is from an overview still be seen that when the needle carrier 4 is in the disposal position, the cover member 3 in the region of the distal end - as shown Fig. 2 - by the interaction of adjustment devices 15 17 is spent and is retained there relatively with respect to the receptacle 2 in its longitudinal movement in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 by means of a locking device 39 fixed. In this embodiment, the locking device 39 is supplied by wendetes min- least a valve disposed on the receiving container 2 and the distal end 10

Retaining element 40 and at least a cooperating locking member 41 formed at the cover member. 3 In this case, the one or more retaining elements to be formed 40 respectively by a resilient part of the vessel wall 6, which are formed projecting at least over a partial region of its longitudinal extent in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 over the inner surface 11 in the direction of the longitudinal axis. 8 Due to the resilient configuration of this retaining member 40 is a movement of the cover 3 from the proximal end 9 in the direction of the distal end 10 is possible wherein the retaining elements are adjusted 40 against its spring action on the facing away from the longitudinal axis 8 side radially outwards, and so the passage of the cover member 3 is made possible up to the re-springing of the retaining elements 40th

If the retaining elements 40 again moved back into their original position or sprung up, a movement of the cover 3 is prevented in back toward the proximal end. 9 In this way unintentional reach into the receiving chamber 7 of the receptacle 2 and the needle assembly 14 is secured therein prevented.

In order to avoid leakage of the cover member 3 during the adjustment movement toward the disposal position of the receiving chamber 7 of the receptacle 2, 39, the locking means additionally at least one is arranged on the receptacle 2 and the distal end 10 supplied wendetes stop element 42 for the cover 3. Thus, the cover member is seen in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 on both sides 3 retained in its possibility of movement and thus set in the disposal position.

The one or more retaining elements 40 are arranged in the region of the guide arrangement 27, in particular in the guide groove 28, in which the distal end 10 facing end portion. Likewise, there are also the one or more stop members 42 in the region of the guide arrangement 27, in particular in the guide groove 28 is arranged.

As is well known, is arranged in the sleeve-shaped Tragköφer 36 of the needle carrier 4, a thread arrangement 43 for the needle assembly 14 except that this thread assembly 43 oriented so that when opposing arrangement and horizontal orientation of the releasable locking device 16 for the cover member 3 a disposed at a cannula tip 44 chamfer is arranged to extend reasonable 45 at an upper side of the needle 5, as is best seen in FIG. 1. This allows for the removal operation and intended use of the entire recording apparatus 1, for example at a right-handed held with the thumb and forefinger and held to the region of the latching device 16, at the same time then the needle 5 in the right for the doffing operation position, namely is arranged on the side facing the user with the bevel and the visible side of the cannula. 5 Thus, a directed position after insertion of the needle assembly is always ensured 14 relative to the whole holding device 1 in the needle carrier. 4 A twisting or shifting or additional handling to the cannula and connected to a stab wound is excluded with very high probability or at all prevented.

In Figs. 7 to 17 a further design possibility of the recording device 1 for a not shown in detail here also receiving vessel such as a well-known blood sample tube, simplified illustration. Likewise, the same reference numbers and component name are used for the same parts. To avoid unnecessary repetitions to How-is to the detailed description given above in

Fig. 1 to 6 or pointed reference. The Fig. 18 generally illustrates the components shown in FIGS. 7 to 17, but with a modification of the rotation between the needle carrier 4 and the housing container 2. The recording apparatus 1 again comprises, in this embodiment the receptacle 2, the cover member 3, the 38 needle carrier 4 with the inserted therein or can be used needle assembly 14, the double-ended cannula zumeinst 5. in addition here includes the holding device 1 still in the region of the distal end 10 of the Aufhahmebehäl- ters 2, at least one, in this inserted fuse element 46, which in FIGS. 15 and 16 is shown in simplified schematic perspective views.

Fig. 7 shows, in turn, as has been already shown in FIG. 1, in which the needle carrier 4 with the inserted therein or insertable cannula 5 and the cover 3 in the region of the proximal end disposed 9 of the receptacle 2, the operating position, and the two adjusting devices 15, 17 are located in a biased position from which these the needle carrier 4 and the cover member 3 spend after unlocking of the locking device 16 in the disposal position by the force acting on these parts of spring force or adjust. This adjustment process has been described in detail already in the vorangegan- genes Fig. 1 to 6 and will not be covered here.

The securing element 46 is inserted into the receiving chamber 7 of the receptacle 2 and held in this locked and latched. Thereby, the possibility is created of the needle carrier 4, the cover member 3, optionally the needle 5, as well as the adjustment devices 15, 17, or even a single, formed from these two components inserted into the receiving chamber 7 of the receptacle 2 and the locking device 16 in the region to position the proximal end 9 is in its locked position and only subsequently deploy the safety element 46th Thereby, the mounting is facilitated as having over the entire insertion of the items described above in the area of ​​the proximal end 9 of the receptacle 2 in the region of its distal end 10 has no retaining elements or stop elements and thus the inserting operation can be easily and virtually unimpeded take place.

Referring now to the simplified representation of the Aufhahmevorrichtung 1 from FIGS. 7 and 8 it can be seen, the first adjusting device 15 between the end wall 13 and the needle carrier 4 is arranged. For centering and stabilizing this adjustment 15 is on the side facing the receiving side comb disposed a nutför--shaped recess 47 and formed in the one end of the adjusting device 15 is inserted in the region of the end wall 10th The thereof averted other end of the adjusting device 15 on at least one, radially supported the sleeve-shaped Tragköφer 36 projecting outwardly beyond support member 37th In this embodiment, the support element is formed as a continuous over the periphery, the support member 48 Tragköφer 36 paramount 37th

In addition, it is also possible that on the facing the proximal end region 9 of the support member 48 and the support member at least a first centering member 49 is arranged for the first adjusting device 15 37th By the cooperation of the support body 36 with the centering elements 49 or a positioning of the first adjusting device 15 is again achieved relative to the needle carrier. 4

In addition, the centering element 49 can also be used for pre-orienting and subsequently for positionally correct insertion of the needle carrier 4 into the receiving chamber. 7 Because the thread formation 43, as already described WOR already in Figs. 1 to 6 and the will be explained below briefly again, a unique predetermined

has to take location or position with respect to the receptacle 2 and arranged between this and the cover member 3 latching device 16 for the orientation of the cannula tip, this predetermined insertion position is important for this operation. Thus, 16 the end of the cannula 5 of the patient is situated during the intended use by the force applied by the adjusting devices 15, 17 adjusting forces can be withdrawn at one-handed operation of the recording device 1 by simply triggering of the locking device without a gripping be performed and thus a dislocation of the entire recording apparatus 1 must take place in relation to the patient. Thus, the withdrawal of the cannula end from the patient with a one-handed operation, for example by the interaction of the thumb and forefinger, and covering the injection opening by a swab with the other free hand can take place. Thus a high safety for the operators is created and the risk of injury is greatly reduced by accidentally pricking and a concomitant infection or avoided altogether.

Furthermore, in the center of the sleeve-shaped Tragköφers 36, the thread arrangement 43 is provided for the needle assembly 14 is aligned in their alignment with the threads of the needle assembly 14 such that when fully screwed position of a shorter opening axis of the opening at the beveled needle tip in the area of proximal end is oriented to run 9 approximately parallel to the two opposite recesses 26th The threaded arrangement 43 for the needle assembly 14 may be formed by a two-start thread, wherein the thread segments are aligned such that, when opposite arrangement and horizontal orientation of the releasable

16 is a latching device disposed at a cannula tip 44 bevel, is arranged to extend to an upper surface 45 of the cannula 5 of the cover member 3 as already explained in the description and the illustration to FIG. 1 and shown. Regardless of any other coupling device between the needle assembly 14 and the needle carrier 4 can however also be selected, of course. Likewise, the needle assembly 14 can also include only a cannula 5 with an appropriately shaped support member, wherein the cannula 5 faces only the proximal end 9 and does not project into the receiving chamber. 7 This could also be used a syringe needle.

8 further be seen from FIG. Yet be seen that the detent device 16 in the region of the receptacle 2 by at least one of the latching elements 25 associated and the inner surface having in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 superior projection 11 which projection the end of the latching recess 26 represents. This Rastaunehmung 26 is formed in the present case only recessed in the tank wall 6 is formed and closed in the area of ​​the outer surface of the 12th In this region, the container wall only a very small wall thickness, which permits actuation of the latching device sixteenth By forming the covered recess 26, an additional protection against leakage of liquids has been provided from the receiving chamber 7 to the outside. This would otherwise easily possible by adjusting the cannula tip into the receiving chamber. 7

The further adjusting device 17, between the needle carrier 4 and the cover member 3 on the one hand supported on the side facing the distal end 10 portion of the Tragköφers 36 or optionally of the support element 37 and the other side on Grundköφer 21 of the cover 3 in the region of the needle carrier. 4 is preferably in the distal end

10 facing portion of the needle carrier 4, in particular the Tragköφers 36, formed in this another tubular recess 50 into which an end of the further adjustment device can be employed 17th This good centering is again achieved the same.

The cover member 3 can also be a further centering element arranged Toggle for further adjusting device 17 51 at the end facing the proximal end region of the Grundköφers 21st This centering element 51 is here in the form of a tubular extension at

Grundköφer 21 is formed, and can serve as inner or as an external centering for the preferably formed by a compression spring of a metallic or a plastics material spring element.

From a comparison of FIGS. 7 to 9 and 17 and 18 it can be seen that between the storage container 2, in particular its container wall 6, and the cover member 3 in turn at least the first guide assembly 27 and between the needle carrier 4 and the housing container 2, a further guide assembly is provided 52nd To form at least a portion of one of the guide assembly 27, 52 a portion 53, 54 of the inner surface 11 of the container wall 6 are each as guide track 55, 56 is formed. the guide tracks 55, 56 and the portions 53, 54 based on the longitudinal extension thereof, to the longitudinal axis 8, aligned parallel to the latter are preferred. Particularly preferred is the and the sub-regions 53, 54 of the inner surface 11 or the entire inner surface 11 with respect to the longitudinal axis 8 are cylindrical - that is with a constant dis- dance to the longitudinal axis 8 - formed. However, it would also be possible the entire inner surface 11 or only at least one of the subregions 53, 54 form with a production-related form slant. This can, for example, up to max. be 0.5 ° and depends on the selected manufacturing method and the materials used.

1 to 6 as described previously in Figs., The first guide assembly 27 is formed between the cover 3 and the receptacle 2. The latching device 16 in turn comprises at least one latching element 25 and at least one cooperating locking recess 26 in the receptacle 2. The latching recess 26 may be located 13 either in the vessel wall 6 or even in the region of the end wall. In this exemplary embodiment shown here are on Grundköφer 21 of the cover

3, a plurality, preferably four, evenly distributed over the circumference arranged locking elements 25 are provided, wherein, in the receptacle 2 a plurality of, preferably two diametrically opposed, and 16 together acting locking recesses 26 are disposed respectively with two of the detent elements 25 to form the locking device omitted.

As can be seen 11 and 12. It is the or the catch elements 25 and, where applicable or the holding arms 57 are arranged in the region of the outer periphery of the cover. 3 The first guide device 27 extends at least over the entire displacement path 58 of the cover 3 between the use position or its standby position in the area of ​​the pro- imum end 9 and the disposal position or its covering position in the region of the distal end 10. This ensures that the cover member 3 during its entire displacement movement always guided in the direction of the longitudinal axis 8 is adjustable. The first guide device 27 is here by the abutment or engagement of the or arranged on the holding arm 57 of the detent elements 25 on or to the guide tracks 55 formed. It is advantageous if the or the catch elements 25 optionally bear 57 directed with a predeterminable or predetermined radially in the direction of the guide track 55 abutting force with the interposition of the support arm. Is, as already described above, the portion 53 of the guide rail 55 aligned parallel to the longitudinal axis 8, an almost equal high arrival position is achieved by virtue over the entire displacement path of the cover 58. 3

The further guide assembly 52 between the receptacle 2 and the needle carrier 4 comprises in the region of the receptacle 2, at least a 11 thereof disposed on the inner surface and projecting toward the longitudinal axis 8, the inner surface 11 outstanding guide member 59, such as a web , a rib or the like. For

To achieve a linear adjustment of the or the guide elements are oriented to run 59 in the direction of the longitudinal axis. 8 Preferably each two form over the circumference seen juxtaposed guide members 59 a part of the other guide assembly 52 between the receptacle 2 and the needle carrier 4, to achieve optimal performance development of a more uniform and tilting freer guide are preferably a plurality of guide members 59 respectively distributed in pairs uniformly over the circumference, in particular to each other crosswise arranged. As described above, the further guide assembly 52 includes at least one further guide track 56, the adjacently arranged between the two guide members 59 is arranged extending.
