Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Domestic sales, including sales to the U.S. government, accounted for 58.0% and 97.3% of the revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.  Domestic revenues decreased 46.8% principally due to lower sales to the U.S. government.  Domestic unit sales decreased 48.9%.  Domestic unit sales were 45.1% of total unit sales for the three months ended March 31, 2022.  Domestic unit sales excluding the U.S. government decreased approximately 16.4%.  International revenues increased approximately 1,313.2% predominately due to purchases from a non-governmental humanitarian organization for international vaccination campaigns.  Overall unit sales increased 8.5%. While international unit sales and revenues increased dramatically, there is uncertainty as to the timing of future international orders. In addition, the revenues on a per-unit basis in the international market are significantly lower than in the U.S. market.  As a result, material increases in international orders and unit sales have the potential to lower our overall revenues on a per-unit basis, as well as our profit margins.

Medical Syringe with Retractable Needle and Modified Plunger Handle with Concave Pressure Application Surface
3 Mar 22
A medical syringe having a forwardly projecting needle that is selectively retractable following use and also having a specially configured plunger handle and thumb cap that cooperate to form a concave pressure application surface (“CPAS”).
Medical Syringe
24 Feb 22
A safety syringe for medical use having an injection molded plastic body with a tubular barrel, a transverse finger flange surrounding the barrel and two upwardly projecting wings with substantially flat, outwardly facing surfaces disposed forwardly of the finger flange, a plunger assembly slidably engaging an inside wall of the barrel, a needle with a tip projecting forwardly from the barrel, and a needle safety shield slidably engaging the body between the wings, wherein the transverse finger flange has a window that allows core pin insertion through the window during injection molding of the body, the plunger assembly has a proximal end cap that is integral with the plunger handle and abuts a rearwardly facing surface of the transverse finger flange, and the needle safety shield has a distal end with a cylindrical needle guard that is forwardly movable following use of the syringe to guard the needle tip.
Dental safety syringe
12 Oct 21
A dental safety syringe comprising selectively attachable barrel and plunger assemblies, the barrel assembly desirably further comprising a needle cartridge containing a needle holder and spring, and having a distal end from which a needle can be made to project forwardly while administering a medication and then subsequently withdrawn into the needle cartridge to avoid contamination following or between injections.
IV catheter with retractable needle and laterally offset biasing element and needle retraction cavity
12 Oct 21
An intravenous catheter introducer for medical use having a body, a frontal attachment that is disposed in transverse sliding engagement with a front part of the body, a hub tube assembly that is releasably supported by the frontal attachment, and a retractable catheter insertion needle and needle holder that are biased rearwardly by a spring offset laterally from the needle axis, whereby lateral repositioning of the body relative to the frontal attachment following vascular insertion moves a needle retraction cavity disposed inside the body into substantial coaxial alignment and causes the needle holder to be retracted into the needle retraction cavity.
Blood collection tube holder with discharge needle displacement member
11 May 21
A medical device configured as a blood collection tube holder, the device having a body with two spaced-apart, oppositely facing, coaxially aligned needles including a forwardly facing venipuncture needle and a rearwardly facing fluid discharge needle, the two needles being held by first and second needle holders separated by a compressible fluid seal defining part of a fluid path between the two needles and the two needle holders.
