Abstract

A reusable continuously sealing one-way valve assembly and delivery system flows a sterile flowable substance from a source to an outlet orifice and prevents any backflow of contaminants through the continuously sealing one way valve assembly when the flowable substance ceases to flow. The valve assembly includes an elastomeric membrane which aids in preventing any backflow of contaminants when dispensing of the flowable substance is stopped. Multiple dosing of preservative-free flowable substance is provided.

Claims

AMENDED CLAIMS
[received by the International Bureau on 03 August 2007 (03.08.07) -4 pages]
a cover enclosing the flexible membrane and having an outlet orifice for dispensing the preservative-free flowable substance from the valve assembly when pressure is applied to the preservative-free flowable substance and wherein when the pressure on the preservative-free flowable substance is released, the first end of the hollow flexible membrane moves back into tightly fitting contact with the outer surface of the inner core before the remainder of the hollow flexible membrane moves back into tightly fitting contact with the outer surface of said inner core. 37. A delivery system comprising: a source for storage of a flowable substance, the source having an opening; a valve assembly coupled to the opening of the source, said valve assembly including
(i) an inner core having an inlet opening for receiving the flowable substance into a passageway and at least one port opening from the passageway,
(ii) a hollow flexible membrane having a first end and a second end, the first end being thicker than the second end, wherein the hollow flexible membrane is fitted over an outer surface of the inner core and when the flowable substance is placed under pressure the flowable substance exits through the at least one port opening and expands said membrane outwardly from said outer surface of said inner core; a cover enclosing the flexible membrane and having an outlet orifice for dispensing the flowable substance from the valve assembly when pressure is applied to the flowable substance and wherein when the pressure on the flowable substance is released, the first end of the hollow flexible membrane moves back into tightly fitting contact with the outer surface of the inner core before the remainder of the hollow flexible membrane moves back into tightly fitting contact with the outer surface of said inner core.
38. A continuously sealing one way valve assembly and delivery system for dispensing a flowable substance, comprising: a source for storage of the flowable substance, the source having an opening; a valve assembly coupled to the opening of the source, said valve assembly including
(i) an inner core having an inlet opening for receiving the flowable substance into a passageway and at least one port opening from the passageway,
(ii) a hollow flexible membrane having a first end and a second end, the first end being thicker than the second end, wherein the hollow flexible membrane is fitted over an outer surface of the inner core and when the flowable substance is placed under pressure the flowable substance exits through the at least one port opening and expands said membrane outwardly from said outer surface of said inner core; a cover enclosing the flexible membrane and having an outlet orifice for dispensing the flowable substance from the valve assembly when pressure is applied to the flowable substance and wherein when the pressure on the flowable substance is released, the first end of the hollow flexible membrane moves back into tightly fitting contact with the outer surface of the inner core before the remainder of the hollow flexible membrane moves back into tightly fitting contact with the outer surface of said inner core, and wherein at least one of said inner core, hollow flexibile membrane and cover comprises an antimicrobial material.
39. A one-way valve assembly and delivery system of claim 38, wherein said antimicrobial material is selected from one of silver ions contained within a ceramic carrier and sustained-release ionic silver compounds.
40. A continuously sealing one way valve assembly and delivery system for dispensing a flowable substance, comprising: a source for storage of the flowable substance, the source having an opening; a valve assembly coupled to the opening of the source, said valve assembly including
(i) an inner core having an inlet opening for receiving the flowable substance into a passageway and at least one port opening from the passageway,
(ii) a hollow flexible membrane having a first end and a second end, the first end being thicker than the second end, wherein the hollow flexible membrane is fitted over an outer surface of the inner core and when the flowable substance is placed under pressure the flowable substance exits through the at least one port opening and expands said membrane outwardly from said outer surface of said inner core; a cover enclosing the flexible membrane and having an outlet orifice for dispensing the flowable substance from the valve assembly when pressure is applied to the flowable substance and wherein when the pressure on the flowable substance is released, the first end of the hollow flexible membrane moves back into tightly fitting contact with the outer surface of the inner core before the remainder of the hollow flexible membrane moves back into tightly fitting contact with the outer surface of said inner core, and wherein at least one of said hollow fiexibile membrane and cover comprises a hydrophobic material.
41. A one-way valve assembly and delivery system of claim 40, wherein said hydrophobic material is selected from one of positively charged material, low friction material, high surface tension material, or anti-wetting material.
42. A one-way valve assembly and delivery system of claim 41, wherein said wherein said low friction material is Teflon.
