MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today announced that it has resolved its differences with Quantel Medical, S.A., Quantel USA, Inc., and Quantel, S.A. (collectively, “Quantel”) in its lawsuit filed against Quantel in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. IRIDEX dismissed the lawsuit it had filed in January 2018, alleging that Quantel products infringed IRIDEX’s U.S. Patent No. 7,771,417, that Quantel breached an earlier agreement between the parties, and that Quantel infringed IRIDEX’s MicroPulse® U.S. Trademark, Registration No. 4550188 on the principal register.

Quantel dismissed its lawsuit in Europe including Tribunal de grande instance de Paris, 3e chambre, 1e section, RG n° 18/06053, related to European patent n° 1 856 774 against IRIDEX and withdrew from participation in the Opposition to IRIDEX’s European Patent No. 1856774.  IRIDEX filed a Notice of Appeal with the European Patent Office (EPO) in that proceeding in October 2018.

"We place a high priority defending our intellectual property and I am very pleased with the swift resolution of the U.S. lawsuit and the intellectual property claims in Europe. Our MicroPulse technology and its brand recognition now remain protected from competitive misuse and misrepresentation," stated William Moore, President and CEO. “We are now able to confidently move forward in devoting our resources to further developing and marketing our proprietary laser technology for treating sight-threatening eye diseases, such as glaucoma and retinal diseases.”

IRIDEX’s MicroPulse technology delivers a tissue-sparing solution that allows the tissue to cool between laser pulses, minimizing or preventing tissue damage, reducing treatment risks, and improving patient comfort and safety.
