NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Caliper Life Sciences today announced a settlement with Carestream Health, ending a legal dispute over imaging technologies.

The settlement and licensing deal covers a patent for analyzing non-coding DNA sequences. Navigenics had been one of 10 defendants in a lawsuit filed by Genetic Technologies alleging infringement of the patent.

The genetic testing company said in its Form 10-Q that it has settled a lawsuit in which it alleged Incyte was paid royalties for which it was not entitled.

Genetic Technologies said it has secured A$14.5 million ($15.2 million) in licensing revenues since it filed its lawsuit in February 2010.

Genetic Technologies granted a non-exclusive license to Orchid Cellmark for a number of patents covering non-coding analysis, gene mapping, and internal standards.

The suit was filed in early November and accused PacBio of luring away at least 15 of Affymetrix's former employees.
