The design has received registration number DM / 103451 and the publication of the registration from WIPO will take place in The International Designs Bulletin no. 44/2018. The protection is valid until 2043.
Calmark develops a point-of-care diagnostic instrument (POC), which consists of a reader and single-use products which, when tested, is placed in the reader. The registration means that Calmark is protected for copying the ergonomic and aesthetic design of the reader.
"We have put both time and money into developing a unique look for our reader, which is easy to use, practical and stylish," says CEO Anna Söderlund. "Protecting the intangible values that we have built up for more than ten years is an obvious focus for Calmark and today's WIPO registration makes piracy and plagiarism difficult."
