Belluscura Files Additional Patent



Tekcapital plc (AIM: TEK), the UK intellectual property (IP) investment group focused on creating marketplace value from university technology, announces that its portfolio company Belluscura plc ("Belluscura") in conjunction with its exclusive research partner Separation Design Group, has expanded its oxygen therapy technology with the filing of a broad patent application covering oxygen enrichment inventions relating to a portable artificial lung and wound care devices.


The latest patent application, titled "Improved Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Device, System and Related Methods," involves incorporating and expanding their existing oxygen enrichment patent portfolio into an innovative, next generation portable artificial lung and a novel wound care treatment device.


Commenting on the patenting activities, Bob Rauker, CEO of Belluscura, said: "We are very excited about our next generation oxygen technology.  With the anticipated launch of our X-PLOR™ portable oxygen concentrator later this year into the respiratory treatment field where over 250 million people suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the third leading cause of death, it is critical that we continue to innovate into the ever-expanding oxygen therapy market."


Dr. Clifford Gross, Chairman at Tekcapital commented: "We are delighted to see the continued progress of Belluscura."
