In response to BD's patent suit, 10x alleged BD's single-cell products infringe its own patents. 10x also asked the judge to dismiss BD's lawsuit.

The case, which was originally being fought between Enzo and Hologic, was decided in favor of Becton Dickinson, Hologic's co-plaintiff.

Among the claims, NeuMoDx has alleged that BD was kept up to date on the firm's technology as it was developed and that one of the patents was duplicitously expanded by BD.

In an earnings call, the firm said it sees growth continuing for the BD Max, BD Cor, and Phoenix systems, and in China in general.

Revenues were in line with Wall Street estimates, and revenue growth represented strength across all three of the firm's business segments.

In US influenza testing, providers see growth in placements within hospital emergency departments, physicians' offices, urgent care centers, and retail clinics.

The company's patent related to labeled nucleotides for use as diagnostic tools and as therapeutic agents has been invalidated.

The complaint alleges that NeuMoDx is willfully infringing on six BD-held patents, and demands injunctive relief, damages, and a jury trial.

The company reaffirmed its full fiscal year 2019 comparable, currency-neutral revenue guidance, and updated its adjusted diluted EPS guidance.

The company reported growth across all three of its business segments and reaffirmed its full-year guidance.
