The invention with new patent protection covers the key technical solutions related to the proprietary non-contact heating and temperature detection system developed for the needs of POCT Genomtec ID platform.
Genomtec has received a positive decision from the Japanese Patent Office granting the company patent protection for the Genomtec technology and device invented by Genomtec.
Granting a patent is conditional on the payment by Genomtec of the required official fees. The Genomtec board has already made a positive decision on this and the fees will be paid shortly.
This is the first patent granted by the Japanese Patent Office and the fourth one received by Genomtec. The company is pending over twenty patent applications worldwide, it said.
“Each subsequent area of patent protection that we receive protects us from copying our technology and thus increases the value of Genomtec in the global market of companies specializing in molecular diagnostics. It also strengthens the competitiveness of our key project, Genomtec ID. Japan and the United States, where the technology and our flagship device are already covered by patent protection, are among the most dynamic countries where similar inventions are created. This gives us a strong negotiating position before signing commercial agreements with selected partners for the implementation of the commercialization strategy, ”said Genomtec CEO Miron Tokarski, quoted in the release.
