The lawsuits were filed concurrently with the U.S. International Trade Commission and in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. Illumina is seeking all available remedies.
The lawsuits are based on U.S. Patent Nos. 8,673,550 and 9,170,230, which are entitled “MSP NANOPORES AND RELATED METHODS.” Illumina has exclusively licensed the patents in the field of nucleic acid sequencing from the UAB Research Foundation and the University of Washington.
