The USPTO has granted Blue-Zone Technologies an additional patent for its Centralsorb Anesthetic Recovery System, which recovers anesthetic gas waste from a hospital’s central location.

Comparable to Blue-Zone’s patented Deltasorb — which performs the same task in operating rooms — Centralsorb focuses on centralized locations.

Positive efficacy results were observed during testing at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in 2010. — Anisa Jibrell
