Court Finds SRU Biosystems Infringed Optical Biosensors IP Licensed to Corning

NEW YORK, Nov. 18 (GenomeWeb News) - The United States District Court for the District of Delaware found that SRU Biosystems has infringed a US patent exclusively licensed to Corning, Corning said yesterday.

 

The patent, No. 4,815,843, covers optical biosensors that enable label-independent detection of chemical, biochemical and biological substances in a sample, Corning said. It was licensed from Artificial Sensing Instruments of Zurich, Switzerland.

 

Corning, in conjunction with ASI, filed a lawsuit in July 2003 to terminate SRU's infringement.

 

In addition to declaring SRU's infrinegement, the US District Court also found that SRU had induced infringement through its testing activities with a potential partner.

 

Details were not disclosed.
