Title: HIGH WORKLOAD INJECTION SYSTEM
Abstract:
A filling device for a needle-free injector system is provided that is adapted to sterilely deliver a predetermined amount of an injectate from a vial to a plurality of cartridges. The filling device normally includes a single-use fluid path disposed between the vial and a receiving cartridge. The fluid path may include a vial connector adapted to couple to a vial, a filler head, and a conduit connecting the vial connector and filler head. The filling device typically further includes a pump coupled to the fluid path and adapted to propel the injectate from the vial to the receiving cartridge, and a cartridge-advancing element. Activation of the cartridge-advancing element is adapted to sequentially advance empty cartridges into a position opposite the filler head. Also provided are disposable fluid path kits and methods of using the filling device.
