Alpharetta Medical Device Manufacturer Sues Competitors
EndoChoice claims three companies have infringed on its patent for the Cinchpad.
An Alpharetta company is suing three other firms on claims they infringed on its patent for Cinchpad, an absorbent pad and impermeable membrane, protecting the work surface and equipment during a gastrointestinal procedure.
After surgery, medical staff can use the Cinchpad's drawsting to close it for easy removal.
EndoChoice filed a complaint against Austin Medical Inc., AVID Medical Inc. and Cygnus Medical LLC in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, alleging that each defendant makes and/or sells a scope transport pad that infringes EndoChoice's patent.
