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.
