*** Medical Instill Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 29 -- Medical Instill Technologies, New Milford, Conn., has been assigned a patent (8,356,733) developed by six co-inventors for a "method for dispensing fluids." The co-inventors are Daniel Py, Larchmont, N.Y., Brian Tulley, Naughatuck, Conn., Jeff Willey, Brookfield, Conn., Norbert Assion, Shelton, Conn., Nathaniel Houle, New York, and Julian Chan, New Milford, Conn.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method for storing fluid and dispensing multiple portions of the stored fluid uses a container defining a variable-volume storage chamber; a dispensing valve including a valve inlet coupled in fluid communication with the variable-volume storage chamber, and an elastic valve member in fluid communication with the valve inlet and defining a normally-closed valve opening; a manually engageable actuator; and a pump including a compressible member defining a compression chamber coupled in fluid communication with the variable-volume storage chamber. Multiple portions of the stored fluid are hermetically sealed in the variable-volume storage chamber. The actuator is manually engageable and movable between (i) a first position wherein the compression chamber defines a first volume, and (ii) a second position wherein the compression chamber defines a second volume less than the first volume. In the second position the fluid in the compression chamber exceeds a valve opening pressure and, in turn, moves the elastic valve member between (i) a normally closed position hermetically sealing the one-way valve and variable-volume storage chamber with respect to ambient atmosphere, and (ii) an open position permitting fluid flow through the valve opening."
