Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9529661A1] The invention concerns a one-piece dispensing device which can be used for the contamination-free administration of medicaments (cytostatica) and is particularly suitable for use in ambulant treatment. The aim of the invention is to design a connector for connecting medicament (cytostatica) containers to the instruments by which the medicaments are administered, the connector being designed to prevent, without a complex apparatus, contamination of the medicament container surroundings during connection of the container and until its disposal. This is achieved according to the invention by the provision of at least one coupling member (1) to create a non-releasable connection with a medicament container, said coupling member (1) having an insertion pin (2) and barbed surfaces (10) to accomodate the medicament container. The coupling member (1) is non-releasably connected via a hose (3, 31) to a flexible container (4; 41) which can be filled exclusively with gas until the device is first used. The container (4; 41) is non-releasably connected to a further tubular outlet (6) and a mechanically actuated stop valve (5, 7) is incorporated in each of the connecting ducts (3, 31, 6).
