BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Alma Lasers Ltd., a global leader in the development and commercialization of innovative aesthetic laser, light-based, and radiofrequency systems, filed a response last week denying all Lumenis' patent infringement claims. Alma Lasers will vigorously defend its position.
"Alma Lasers continues to build momentum in the marketplace due to our innovation, value and high customer service," stated Howard Kelly, CEO of Alma Lasers. "It is unfortunate that certain competitors resort to litigation to compensate for their failings in the marketplace."
Previously, Lumenis tried to enforce two of the same patents it is now asserting against Alma in a lawsuit against another company and failed. With respect to those two patents, a federal district judge denied Lumenis' Motion for Preliminary Injunction, and questioned the validity of a Lumenis asserted claim in a published opinion. Lumenis ultimately settled that case before trial.
Alma Lasers continues to stand behind all of its products and their warranties. Our customers and prospective customers can be assured that this dispute will not impact their use of any Alma product.
