PTS, Inc. Announces Two New Patents

INDIANAPOLIS, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Polymer Technology Systems, Inc. (PTS, Inc.), the U.S.-based manufacturer of the CardioChek® family of point-of-care diagnostic products, has announced the issuance of two new U.S. patents.  U.S. Patent No. 8,257,654 relates to the management of health data collected by point-of-care testing devices using a health report server.  U.S. Patent No. 8,307,531 covers a method and apparatus for manufacturing disposable dry test strips. 

"Our products are built upon a number of proprietary technologies and processes," says Robert Huffstodt, President and CEO of PTS, Inc.  "These patents, along with the other patents we hold, help PTS, Inc. maintain technological leadership for our customers."

U.S. Patent No. 8,257,654 is for a health report server that may receive medical data from a diverse set of point-of-care testing systems deployed in a hospital or other medical facility.  By utilizing a network-based system, medical data can be collected concerning patients and then securely and conveniently stored.  The system allows for medical data to then be distributed to those medical personnel who need it, such as doctors.  The system provides for simple menu-driven access to the stored medical information. 

PTS, Inc. has led the way in providing innovative connectivity solutions.  For example, the CardioChek HRA software captures biometric data and receives test results directly from a CardioChek PA analyzer to calculate a cardiac age based on an individual's risk factors using the Framingham Heart Study criteria.  And, CardioChek Link® data transfer software and cable provides for the output of test results from the CardioChek PA device into a computer spreadsheet file.

The intellectual property covered under U.S. Patent No. 8,307,531 not only provides for a more accurate test strip, but also reduces any waste and provides a more efficient manufacturing process.

The new patents are in addition to more than forty-five U.S. and international patents already owned by PTS, Inc.  These patents span such technology areas as vertical flow HDL determination, room-temperature-stable triglycerides, structures and techniques for creating multi-analyte test strips, data collection and management from point-of-care testing devices, the detection of various cholesterol-related blood analytes, and other test strip-related detection technologies.
