Intellectual property portfolio now includes 188 Patents and 131 Trademarks providing robust protection for the Company’s product platforms

ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / May 2, 2024 / Zomedica Corp. (NYSE American:ZOM) (“Zomedica” or the “Company”), a veterinary health company offering point-of-care diagnostics and therapeutic products for equine and companion animals, today announced the issuance of three new patents, bolstering the intellectual property protection for its revolutionary TRUFORMA diagnostic platform. The TRUFORMA system provides veterinary professionals with reference laboratory accuracy directly at the point of care, enhancing the health management of horses and companion animals.

TRUFORMA technology represents a breakthrough in veterinary health diagnostics, employing highly sensitive proprietary Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) technology in a compact, easy-to-use device. This system utilizes disposable cartridges that are preloaded with reagents to minimize sample preparation and simplify the workflow, allowing veterinarians to deliver timely and accurate diagnostic results at the point of care. This supports more confident decision-making in clinical environments, primarily benefiting small animal practices and equine or mixed veterinary practices.

The newly patents issued include innovations in the TRUFORMA® cartridge design and functionality:

  • U.S. Patent 11,933,793 B2 issued for Two Part Assembly
  • U.S. Patent 11, 940,414 issued for Crowded Sensor
  • U.S. Patent 11,940,415 B2 issued for Fluidic Device with Fluid Port Orthogonal to Functionalized Active Region

Ashley Wood, PhD, Zomedica’s Vice President of Research & Development, stated, “These patents cover innovations that enable the TRUFORMA system to detect a wider array of health conditions, from thyroid and adrenal disorders to gastrointestinal and pancreatic diseases, swiftly and with great precision, empowering veterinarians to enhance the quality of care they provide, which is at the heart of everything we do at Zomedica.”

With the addition of these patents, Zomedica now holds a total of 65 U.S. patents and 123 international patents, with 33 U.S. and 98 foreign trademarks, strengthening the Company’s market position. The Company additionally has 62 patent applications pending in the U.S. and abroad.

“The addition of these new patents to our portfolio is a testament to Zomedica’s innovative spirit and dedication to veterinary excellence,” stated Larry Heaton, Chief Executive Officer of Zomedica. “These new patents not only expand our intellectual property portfolio but also reinforce our capability to deliver industry-leading diagnostic solutions. Our TRUFORMA platform is setting a new standard in veterinary care, providing unique assays not possible with other point of care analyzers, and empowering vets with the tools they need to diagnose and treat animals more effectively at the point of care.”

The total addressable market for Zomedica’s diagnostic and therapeutic products is estimated at $2.5 billion annually. The Company’s potential customer base for TRUFORMA installations is expansive, including approximately 4,450 equine or mixed veterinary practices and 30,000 small animal veterinary practices across the United States, in a veterinary services market estimated at $62 billion.
