A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11938089B2) discloses a container assembly designed to hold a medication administration device securely. The assembly includes a side wall defining a tube with a closed bottom end and an upper open end, creating a cavity. A cap with hold down members is movable between open and closed positions, with the hold down members contacting the non-actuator portion of the medication device when stored in the container. The cap features a circumferential flange and a latch, with the hold down members extending beyond the flange for added security.

Furthermore, the container assembly incorporates a desiccant within the cavity, extending between the closed bottom end and an interior shoulder along the side wall. The desiccant, with an annular shape, includes an annular notch to receive the interior shoulder, enhancing moisture control within the container. The cap is coupled to the side wall by a hinged connection, with the hold down members positioned circumferentially to ensure proper engagement with the medication administration device. Overall, the patented container assembly offers a secure and moisture-controlled storage solution for medication devices, ensuring their integrity and effectiveness over time.
