Google’s foray into medical technology appears to be continuing. The company, which now has a sister Google Life Sciences business operating under its Alphabet parent company, has applied for a patent for a laser ablation surgical device.
“The high-energy beam can be very narrow, enabling the ablation of very small, precisely targeted tissues,” says the recently published patent application, which Google filed in May 2014 with the U.S. Patent Office.
