Stratagene Shares Down 6 Percent on Q2 Loss

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Shares in Stratagene were down approximately 6 percent, or $.43, at $6.41 in mid-afternoon trading today after the company said that litigation-related charges swung second-quarter earnings to a loss.
As GenomeWeb News reported this morning, Stratagene said total revenues were down 6 percent to $23.4 million due to poor sales of its gene-discovery and cloning systems products.
The company’s net loss of $3.7 million reflects the litigation charges from the patent case involving Invitrogen's patents.
