lawsuit

The company's original lawsuit, filed last March, accused Natera of infringing on two patents it holds in conjunction with Stanford University.

BioMérieux had alleged infringement of two of its patents associated with nucleotide sequences to detect HIV-1 subtypes. 

According to the complaint, the allegedly infringing products include all those that use nucleotides with a 3’-O-azidomethyl blocking group.

Add the Missing Data

A federal judge has ruled that drug companies, device manufacturers, and universities need to provide missing clinical data from hundreds of trials to a federal website, ScienceInsider reports.

BGI is planning to offer free trials of its MGI DNBSEQ-G400 sequencing system to key opinion leaders, a development Illumina is trying to stop.

CareDx first sued Natera in April 2019, accusing the company of trying to mislead patients and clinicians about the superiority of its Prospera transplant test.

The commission plans to bar Bio-Rad from importing certain single-cell products, potentially including the ddSeq Single-Cell Isolator and ddSeq cartridges.

Following a lengthy discovery period, the lab is asking a South Carolina federal district court to find in its favor and decide that its negligence did not result in the death of Williams' son.

Tapering Suit

ScienceInsider reports six researchers are suing the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research for "tapering" their funding. 

The court dismissed BGI's counterclaim against Illumina for willful infringement of its patent but allowed the claim for induced infringement to proceed.
