RainDance Technologies, Inc. has filed a patent infringement suit against 10X Genomics, Inc. (“10X”) of Pleasanton, California. The suit was filed in Federal District Court in Delaware. The patents asserted are U.S. patent numbers 7129091, 822148, 8273573, 8304193, 8329407, and 889083, which are all exclusively licensed to RainDance from the University of Chicago. 10X has recently begun to offer for sale a system that infringes RainDance’s patent rights, and RainDance filed this suit to vigorously defend its intellectual property and current and future products.
