FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Californer -- Lineus Medical continues to expand its patent portfolio with the issuance of two new patents. The first issued patent was a Japanese Utility Patent (JP7095097) for SafeBreak® Vascular, a break-away medical device that helps protect peripheral IV lines. The second issued patent was a US utility patent for a dual lumen peripheral IV catheter, BVAD (Bifurcated Venous Access Device). Lineus Medical's patent portfolio has grown to nine issued patents from various countries across the world, with more patents pending.

SafeBreak Vascular is a first of its kind, FDA cleared breakaway device designed to remove harmful forces from peripheral IV (PIV) lines by intentionally separating when damaging levels of force are applied to the IV line. By preventing harmful IV line tension from reaching the catheter, SafeBreak Vascular reduces mechanical PIV complications requiring an IV restart.

BVAD, the second device in the company's pipeline, is a dual lumen peripheral IV catheter designed to allow uncontaminated blood draws from a dedicated secondary lumen while allowing normal infusions through the primary lumen. BVAD furthers the company's goal that every patient should have one catheter and one needlestick per hospitalization, and intends to provide value and efficiency to nurses and hospitals.

Vance Clement, CEO of Lineus Medical, said, "The issuance of both the Japanese patent for SafeBreak Vascular and our US patent for BVAD are significant milestones as we expand our patent portfolio and look to expand internationally. These patents are critical steps in our mission to remove the pains associated with medical lines, not just in the US, but globally."

Spencer Jones, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, commented, "Japan is the second largest medical device market in the world, so securing patent protection for SafeBreak Vascular in this market captures enormous enterprise value for our organization. BVAD has already been granted patent protection in several international markets and obtaining a patent in the US is another invaluable addition to our portfolio. Consistent innovation is crucial for emerging companies like Lineus Medical, and protecting those ideas is paramount."
