A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11857498B2) discloses a female syringe system designed to couple with a male syringe efficiently. The system includes a female syringe with a barrel member, a plunger, and a tapered female coupler that prevents the male member of the male syringe from protruding into the internal cavity of the barrel member when coupled. The female coupler features a structural configuration with lug thread members that threadedly mate with the male syringe, ensuring a secure connection. Additionally, the female coupler has a smooth outer surface, except for the lug threads, and is longer than the annular sleeve of the male syringe, preventing any protrusion beyond the sleeve.

Furthermore, the patent details the materials used in the syringe system, with the female syringe typically made of polypropylene and the male syringe of cyclic olefin copolymers. The design of the female syringe system also includes a tapered internal lumen in the female coupler, enhancing the functionality of the coupling mechanism. The system aims to provide a reliable and secure connection between the female and male syringes, ensuring efficient and accurate dispensing of contents without any risk of protrusion or leakage. Overall, the patented female syringe system offers a novel and practical solution for medical and pharmaceutical applications requiring precise and controlled delivery of substances.
