Puritan Wins 6 Year Battle To Correct Erroneous Copan Patent Title
GUILFORD, Maine, Nov. 15, 2018
GUILFORD, Maine, Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Puritan Medical Products Co., LLC, an American company with a worldwide reputation as a trusted manufacturer of swabs and single-use specimen collection devices, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office recently granted its petition to correct the title of Copan's US Patent No. 8,114,027 B2.
Before correction, the title erroneously indicated that the patent was directed to a "Swab for Collecting Biological Specimens." In fact, the patent is not for a swab but is instead for a method. The corrected title, "Method for Collecting Biological Specimens," now reflects this.
Puritan Medical Products Co., LLC, is an American company known worldwide as the trusted manufacturer of single-use products for the healthcare, diagnostic, forensic, critical environment, food safety, and drug manufacturing industries. Puritan manufactures all of its flocked swab products in their Guilford, ME, U.S. facility.
