Title: NEEDLELESS CONNECTOR VALVE
Abstract:
Embodiments of needleless connector valves are provided. The valve comprises an inlet, and outlet, and a body between the inlet and outlet. The valve comprises a sealed core segment supporting a septum configured to seal the inlet. Insertion of a connector into the inlet causes the core segment to depress and the septum to fold over on itself, allowing fluid flow around the core segment. Removing the connector causes the core segment to retract and the septum to unfold.
