Transonic Systems Wins Court Of Appeals Ruling On Its Hemodialysis Access Flow Measurement Patent



10/19/2005 5:09:03 PM

ITHACA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 29, 2005--Transonic Systems Inc. announced today that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit issued a ruling in favor of Transonic, in its patent dispute with Non-Invasive Medical Technologies Corporation (dba HemaMetrics, maker of the Crit-Line monitor) on Transonic's U.S. Patent No. 5,685,989. Transonic prevailed on all counts. The Court of Appeals reviewed a decision of the United States District Court of Utah that had determined the Crit-Line Delta-H and Go/No-Go methods did not infringe Transonic's patent for measurement of access flow during dialysis. Citing that the District Court of Utah had erred on three fronts, the Court of Appeals reversed and vacated the lower court's ruling of non-infringement.
