Medigus (NASDAQ: MDGS) has received a Notice of Intention to Grant a Patent from the European Patent Office (EPO) for its micro ScoutCam miniature camera technology. The patent application was submitted under the title SMALL DIAMETER VIDEO CAMERA HEADS AND VISUALIZATION PROBES AND MEDICAL DEVICES CONTAINING THEM.

“We are pleased with this notice from the European Patent Office as it validates the significance of our microvisual technology over a variety of applications and builds to our growing body of IP,” said Chris Rowland, CEO of Medigus. “Our engineers are continually enhancing our technology platform and remain committed to delivering the most innovative new solutions for a broad scale of unmet needs across medical, industrial and other scientific applications.”

Medigus holds existing patents for one of its micro ScoutCam brands as well as for MUSE™, its flagship medical device that incorporates the micro ScoutCam to help physicians perform transoral incisionless fundoplication procedures.
