    Pacific Biosciences Settles IP Litigation with Life Technologies, Helicos


    Pacific Biosciences Settles IP Litigation with Life Technologies, Helicos
    May 02, 2012

    Helicos settlement details are still not finalized......

    Helicos sued PacBio in August 2010 alleging infringement of four patents
    held by Helicos covering its methods for sequencing a single strand of DNA by
    synthesizing a complementary strand of DNA using labeled nucleotide bases.

    The four patents are US Patent Nos. 7,645,596; 7,037,687; 7,169,560; and

    Helicos claimed PacBio infringed the patents through the manufacture and sale of
    instruments incorporating its Single Molecule Real Time (SMRT) DNA sequencing

    Helicos' agreed-upon settlement is with PacBio only. Helicos later named Life
    Tech and Illumina as defendants in the lawsuit, and no deal with those firms has
    been announced.\
