Carestream Files Patent Infringement Suit against Caliper

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Carestream Health has filed a lawsuit against Caliper Life Sciences claiming infringement of a recently issued US patent.

The suit was filed Friday in the US District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin.

Rochester, NY-based Carestream alleges 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.

In addition, Carestream alleges that Caliper is and was aware of the '325 patent, and the infringement is willful.

Carestream has asked the court to declare that it is the owner of the '325 patent, and that Caliper is infringing the patent. It also seeks a preliminary and permanent injunction prohibiting Caliper from selling its IVIS Lumina system, as well as a tripling of damages.
