Stratagene Sues Third Wave Over Quantitative Nucleic Acid-Detection IP

NEW YORK, May 10 (GenomeWeb News) - Stratagene has sued Third Wave Technologies for allegedly infringing patents covering its quantitative nucleic acid-detection technology, Stratagene said yesterday.


In the suit, filed in the US District Court for the District of Delaware, Stratagene claims that some of Third Wave's Invader products infringe its patents. The company seeks monetary damages as well as a permanent injunction against further infringement by Third Wave.


Stratagene has four USpatents covering the technology, which it uses in its FullVelocity product, a reagent system for quantitative PCR and QRT-PCR.
