BGI

Illumina said it plans to pursue a permanent injunction against BGI in the UK until the four patents expire — three in 2023 and one in 2027.

In their complaint the plaintiffs claimed Illumina fraudulently obtained two US patents by concealing a reference from the patent office.

The kit, developed by BGI Patho-Genesis Pharmaceutical Technology, is designed to construct a metagenomic sequencing library directly from clinical samples.

The Zoonomia Project and the Bird 10,000 Genomes Project have reported new genome sequences that could inform conservation and other efforts.

Both RT-PCR tests are for the simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, and influenza B from throat swab samples.

BGI will have a chance to depose up to nine inventors of patents assigned to Illumina as part of a lawsuit over IP related to sequencing-by-synthesis chemistry.

Sweden's public health authority says BGI's COVID-19 test returned thousands of false positive results, according to Reuters.

The US Commerce Department has placed two BGI Group subsidiaries on a list of entities it suspects of human rights violations, allegations the company denies, Reuters reports.
