29 Nov 2013 US patent granted

Calon is delighted to announce the grant of US patent 8,550,975 for a novel device designed to provide medium term intraventricular mechanical circulatory support during myocardial regeneration. This closely follows the grant of a US patent covering novel hydrodynamic bearings for use in long term ventricular assist pumps.  Dr Graham Foster,

Calon's CTO commented "these two patent grants demonstrate the novelty of the technological approach Calon is taking to produce the next generation of Ventricuar Assist Devices. It also illustrates the breadth of our IP estate and the rapid progression between application and grant. We look forward to further grants in Europe and elsewhere"
