NEW YORK, July 19 (GenomeWeb News) - Enzo Biochem today said that a federal court issued a ruling supporting the company's claims that "hundreds" of products marketed by certain companies infringe eight of Enzo's patents.

 

The ruling allows Enzo to pursue patent-infringement claims against Affymetrix, Roche, Amersham, PerkinElmer, Sigma Aldrich, Orchid Biosciences and Molecular Probes. It also enables Enzo to claim that the defendants breached their contractual obligations to Enzo.
