lawsuit

The company filed its first suit against Natera in March, claiming the firm's kidney transplant test infringes patents underlying CareDx's AlloSure test.

The suit alleges that BGI's sequencing products and reagents infringe a European patent held by Illumina. 

CareDx claims that Natera is infringing on two of its patents related to non-invasive monitoring of organ transplant rejection through cell-free DNA analysis.

The US Court of Appeals upheld a previous ruling by the International Trade Commission that found Oxford Nanopore's products do not infringe on PacBio's patents.

The federal government said GenomeDx billed Medicare for its Decipher Biopsy prostate cancer genome classifier on behalf of patients who didn't need the test.

PacBio agreed to pay attorneys' fees to settle lawsuits brought against it by investors regarding Illumina's acquisition.
