SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 656,914, dated August 28, 1900.

Application filed March 30, 1900- Seria1No. 10,819. (No model.)

To wZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, RALPH WALSH, a citizen of the United States, residing in Washington city, in the District of Columbia, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Vaccine-Point Cases or Carriers, of which the following is a specification.

My object is to provide a case or carrier for ivory or other points armed with dry vaccine which will hold them safe and protected from extraneous injurious influences until the last point is used up.

The invention has been particularly designed for use in connection with points armed with the dry glycerinized vaccine lymph, which is the subject of the application for Letters Patent of Edward Mason Parker, filed February 5, 1900, Serial No. 3,989; but it can of course be used in connection with other dry points.

The box or case is one which is provided with a body to contain in the vaccine-armed the handle ends of the points protrude, an aseptic or sterilized expansible filling or packing around the points in the body which will expand, so as to fill the space left by the points as they are withdrawn, and a removable cover which fits upon the cap or body and shields the protruding handle ends of the points.

In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, Figure 1 is a View of the device with the cover removed. Fig. 2 is a View of the cap, body, and cover before they are put together. Fig.3 is a vertical central section of the complete device. Fig. 4 is a horizontal section of the same on line 4 4, Fig. 3.

The body A, cap B, and cover C may be of any suitable materialas, for example, sheet metal-and that may be of cylindrical or other suitable contour. In the top of the cap B, which top is preferably slightly dome-shaped, is an aperture b, preferably rectangular in shape, of a size to fit fairly snugly around the handle end of the vaccine-armed points P, which protrude through it. D is an aseptic expansive filling or packing consisting, for example, of sterilized jewelers cotton.

While the method of packing the points into the case forms no part of the present invention, I would remark that in practice I avoid handling the points by hand after they are once armed or provided with the vaccine. They are put into their cases by means of sterilized mechanical appliances, which avoid necessity of touching them with the hand. So, too, the body A is sterilized before the points are placed in it. After the requisite number of points have been dropped into the body A, I then by means of a suitable mechanical appliance on, for example, sterilized forceps fill the interior of the body A around the points therein with an expansible aseptic filling D, preferably sterilized jewelers cotton, which is packed closely into the body A around the points, so as to fill all that part of the body which is unoccupied by the points. After this has been done thecap B is put on over the top of the body, the handle ends of the points passing out through the aperture 1), as seen in Fig. 1. The cap may then be permanently secured to the body, if desired, although this is not indispensable. It should, however, fit the body so tightly that it will not be withdrawn with the cover 0 when the latter is taken off. The removable cover 0 fits down over the handle ends of the points upon the cap or body and is preferably of such dimensions that when in place its top will bear tightly upon the upper ends of the points P. Whenever apoint is desired,the cover 0 is removed, and one of the points can then be readily withdrawn, the other points being steadied and held in place by the aseptic expansion filling or packing D, which expands to take the place of the withdrawn point and closes around the remaining points, so as to protect them thoroughly.

What I claim is- A vaccine-point carrier or case consisting of a body or case proper for receiving the charged ends of the points, a cap filling the open end of said body and having an aperture formed therein through which the uncharged ends of said points protrude, a re movable cover for said protruding ends, and an aseptic expansible packing filling the box or case around the points therein, substantially as and for the purposes hereinbefore set forth.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 27th day of March, 1900.

RALPH WALSH.
