Oxford Nanopore responds to the patent lawsuit filed by Pacific Biosciences
Thu 3rd November 2016
Oxford Nanopore Technologies, the UK-based company that sells the only nanopore sequencing device, the MinION portable DNA sequencer and is now releasing the high throughput/high sample number PromethION device, responds to the patent lawsuit filed by Pacific Biosciences.
Dr Gordon Sanghera, CEO of Oxford Nanopore said “This new out-of-the-blue ITC complaint shows some very one dimensional reasoning.”
We do not anticipate any disruption to our ongoing commercial progress as a result of this action, which we believe is without merit.
MinION is a portable real-time DNA sequencer which you can use with no capital cost.
PromethION is a high throughput, high sample number, on demand DNA sequencer.
We recently released upgraded kits to enable 10Gb of high quality data from a single MinION flow cell.
