Biolase awarded new patent for diode lasers

Biolase Technology has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 7,695,469 B2, based on a patent application that was filed in 2007, for technology that is utilized in its ezlase and iLase diode laser devices.

The patent contains 20 separate claims, the company noted. The patent describes some of the technology found in the ezlase and also contains drawings of two additional battery-powered, standalone lasers that being developed at the time of patent filing. One of those lasers is completely wireless and shows an earlier concept of what became the iLase. It illustrates the display, controls, laser, and batteries, all included as part of a single, cylindrical handpiece.

"We are very pleased to now have an issued patent covering some of the key technologies that were the conception of and resulted in the launch of iLase this year," CEO David Mulder stated in a press release.
