Generating a high voltage electrical field several thousand times per second, OpenCEL’s Focused Pulsed (FP) Technology helps eliminate waste from wastewater. What’s more, OpenCEL’s FP Technology converts that waste into a form that facilitates its efficient conversion into energy. As a result, OpenCEL’s technology is an all-around “green” win—cleaner water is returned to the environment, less waste is sent to landfills, and more energy is available from alternative sources.

At the same time, Marshall, Gerstein & Borun LLP has worked side-by-side with OpenCEL to make sure that the FP Technology is an all-around winner at the Patent Office as well. With a number of patents already issued on their core technology, our Firm and OpenCEL have extended the FP Technology to new applications. With an eye to streamlining the patent process, we made sure that OpenCEL was one of the first applicants to take advantage of the Green Technology Pilot Program, reducing in one instance a projected 21 month wait for a first office action to 2 months.

Marshall Gerstein is proud of the work it has done as a part of OpenCEL’s team, and wants to work with you to protect your green technology as we all do our part for a brighter tomorrow.

Zebra Technologies Accelerates Strategic Growth with Deal to Acquire Matrox Imaging

When Zebra Technologies Corporation, a world leader in designing, manufacturing, and selling innovative software, hardware, and digital solutions, decided to accelerate its strategic growth in machine vision by acquiring the imaging division of Matrox, it turned to Marshall Gerstein to handle the complex IP issues involved in the carve-out acquisition. Executing an interdisciplinary approach, Marshall Gerstein assembled a small team with deep subject matter experience within our IP transactions, electrical engineering patent prosecution, and trademark practice groups to ensure a smooth and successful deal that protected Zebra’s interests, particularly with respect to use of IP assets with applicability across multiple businesses.

Zebra notes that “the acquisition of Matrox Imaging expands the portfolio of machine vision products, software and services Zebra can offer customers to help them thrive in the on-demand economy that is constrained by both labor shortages and limited supply of upstream goods and materials,” according to the company’s press release.
