NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Caliper Life Sciences today filed counterclaims against Carestream Health and denied allegations Carestream made in a recent patent infringement suit it filed against Caliper.
Last month, Rochester, NY-based Carestream alleged in a suit that Caliper is infringing US Patent No. 7,734,325, titled, "Apparatus and Method for Multi-Modal Imaging," which was issued to the firm on June 8, 2010. Specifically, Carestream said that Caliper's IVIS Lumina XR Imaging System uses technology covered by the '325 patent.
Caliper today filed its answer to that complaint, denying all allegations that it is infringing the patent and that Carestream is due any damages. In addition, Caliper has asked the court to declare that it is not infringing the patent, that certain claims in the patent are invalid, and that Caliper is entitled to a judgment that those claims are invalid or unenforceable.
