SHARING OPTIONS:

CARLSBAD, Calif.Life Technologies Inc. announced in late January that a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California rendered a verdict in its favor in its patent-infringement dispute with Illumina Inc. In this dispute, Illumina alleged that the SOLiD sequencing system commercialized by Applied Biosystems, a subsidiary of Life Technologies, infringed three patents. The court in this action previously ruled that the SOLiD system did not infringe two of the three patents and the jury was tasked with deciding whether Applied Biosystems' SOLiD technology infringed U.S. Patent No. 5,969,119 (the '119 patent) and whether this patent was valid. After a seven-day jury trial, the jury unanimously decided that the SOLiD sequencing technology did not infringe the '119 patent. DDN
