Patents

As I have moved from academia to industry my work now research largely takes the forms off patents over papers.

Here is a list of patent applications which are currently at the PTC stage or further.

Treating a contact lens

The invention relates to an apparatus for treating a contact lens, and method of use thereof, allowing cleaning and/or disinfecting of contact lenses. The apparatus comprises a reservoir for an aqueous solvent, arranged to receive the contact lens; and a source of ionised gas plasma proximate to the reservoir. The method comprises placing the contact lens into the solvent; producing ionised gas plasma which generates reactive species proximate to the contact lens; and dissolving the reactive species into the solvent so as to form an aqueous solution.
