Dolomite Announces Microdroplet IP License Arrangements with JST
News Aug 24, 2012
Dolomite has announced that it is now a licensee of Japan Science and Technology Agency (“JST”) under JST’s microdroplet generation technology.
Dolomite is authorized to grant sublicenses under JST’s microdroplet generation technologies.
Dolomite offers a wide range of Droplet-forming devices featuring different junction geometries, channel sizes and surface properties.
Droplet based microfluidics is ideal for a wide range of applications, including compartmentalized chemistry, single cell analysis, high throughput screening, droplet PCR and emulsion studies.
As a licensee of JST's microdroplet generation technology patent families WO2002/068104 and WO2005/089921, our customers may purchase and freely use Dolomite droplet chips for R&D purposes.
As part of the IP agreement, Dolomite is authorized to grant sub-licenses under JST’s microdroplet generation technologies.
Through the innovative use of our web shop, end-users can obtain sub-licenses very simply, using only a credit card.
Licenses are issued on a per chip basis, and may be purchased in any quantity from one to one million.
Dolomite CEO Andrew Lovatt commented: “We are very pleased to be able to offer this IP-licensing service to our clients, enabling them to continue with their droplet research free from concerns about violating this fundamental IP”.
