Court Issues Permanent Injunction Enjoining OMI From Infringing A Retractable Technologies, Inc. Syringe Patent

Retractable Technologies, Inc. (“Retractable”) (AMEX: RVP), a leading maker of safety needle devices, announced that a final judgment and permanent injunction were entered March 4, 2010 in the litigation of Retractable Technologies, Inc. v. OMI (Occupational & Medical Innovations Limited, an Australian company).

On December 18, 2009, the jury delivered a verdict in favor of Retractable in its patent infringement and misappropriation of trade secrets lawsuit against OMI. The Court ordered that Retractable recover damages and prejudgment interest from OMI based on OMI’s misappropriation of trade secrets in the amount of $3,153,575. In addition, the Court entered a permanent injunction enjoining OMI, its manufacturers, distributors and service providers from infringing Retractable’s Patent Number 6,572,584, by making, importing, selling, or using any of OMI’s syringes in the United States and its territories. The permanent injunction was effective at 12:00 noon, Central Time, on March 4, 2010.

Retractable manufactures and markets safety medical products, principally VanishPoint ® automated retraction safety syringes, automated retraction blood collection devices, and automated retraction I.V. catheters, that virtually eliminate healthcare worker exposure to accidental needlestick injuries. These revolutionary devices use patented technology that causes the contaminated needle to retract automatically, a feature that is designed to prevent both accidental needlestick injury and device reuse. Retractable also manufactures and markets Patient Safe ® syringes that are uniquely designed to reduce the risk of bloodstream infections resulting from catheter hub contamination. Patient’s Safe unique luer guard reduces the risk of luer tip contact contamination and the risk of contamination of intravenous fluid. Retractable's products are distributed by various specialty and general line distributors. For more information on Retractable, visit our website at www.vanishpoint.com.
