Issuance of U.S. Patent No. 10,906,022 Protects HepatoChem’s Innovate Reaction Chamber Geometry That Maximizes Sample Irradiation

Beverly, Ma., February 22, 2021— HepatoChem, Inc., a leading manufacturer of photochemistry reactors, LEDs and accessories, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No. 10,906,022, which is directed to the assembly of a device that allows for conducting arrays of photochemical reaction conditions at room temperature with magnetic stirring.

U.S. Patent No. 10,906,022 covers the housing and assembly of a device that provides an opening for interchangeable vial holders, an adaptor for receiving light sources and ports for entry and exit of a fluid for adjusting the temperature of the reaction vials.  Additional issued claims pertain to use of mirrors positioned within the reaction chamber to better disperse light and fully irradiate photochemical reaction samples. The ‘022 Patent contains 14 claims and expires in 2041.

This newly allowed patent is owned by HepatoChem, Inc., and is the first U.S. patent to issue in connection with the company’s photoreactor devices.

“This is a milestone for HepatoChem. Our advantage is predicated on our ability to innovate and support pioneering researchers in advancing the field of photochemistry. This patented technology is game-changing for our field of focus and its efficiencies and precision will streamline research and the development of novel therapies ,” said Marc Bazin, President and Founder of HepatoChem.
