The US International Trade commission said today it voted to investigate Chinese disposable medical device supplier Yangzhou WeiDeLi Trade Co over complaints of violated intravascular medical component patents.
The complaints were filed by East Aurora, N.Y.-based Curlin Medical and Moog Inc and Salt Lake City, Utah-based Zevex Inc on March 13, according to USITC documents. Yangzhou WeiDeLi Trade Co is named as the only respondent in the complaint.
In the complaint, the companies allege that Yangzhou WeiDeLi unlawfully imports certain intravascular administration sets and components which infringe on patents owned by the involved companies. The complaint specifically named the company’s WeiDeLi ACTA 7128 IV administration set as an example of an infringing product.
