The single-cell analysis firm plans to use the proceeds to fund general corporate activities and potentially acquire businesses, products, or technologies.

In addition to the $24 million jury verdict, 10x must pay an additional $8.3 million in damages and $2.2 million in interest. It has appealed the case.

Using 10x Genomics' immune profiling and ATAC-seq assays, the researchers upended the notion that cancer-fighting T cells come from within a tumor.

The exact restrictions the injunction will place on 10x are not yet determined. 10x will also have to pay Bio-Rad additional damages, plus interest.

A federal judge upheld a $24 million jury award to Bio-Rad, while a trade court judge said Bio-Rad imported microfluidics that infringed 10x patents.

A collaboration with ATAC-seq experts at the Broad Institute suggests the Bio-Rad assay can analyze tens of thousands of cells per experiment.

The study used a variety of sequencing and mapping technologies, including from Illumina, Pacific Biosciences, 10X Genomics, Bionano Genomics, and Oxford Nanopore.
