June 8, 2018 | GUILFORD, ME (U.S.) – Puritan Medical Products Co., LLC—an American company with a worldwide reputation as a trusted manufacturer of swabs and single-use specimen collection devices—announced today that it unequivocally rejects a complaint alleging unfair competition and patent infringement filed by COPAN Italia S.p.A. and its U.S. subsidiary, COPAN Diagnostics Inc., in federal district court in Maine.

“We were surprised and highly disappointed by this action, said Terry Young, Puritan’s General Manager & COO. “We are currently reviewing this unexpected complaint and preparing our response and potential counterclaims. Puritan is confident in its position and will continue routine operations to manufacture and supply all customers with its patented Puritan flock swab products.”
