Applied Biosystems Group, an Applera Corporation business, has announced that the Technical Board of Appeal of the European Patent Office (EPO) has reinstated Applera's European Patent No. 872562 covering real-time PCR thermal cycler technology, overturning a December 2004 decision by the Opposition Division to revoke the patent for alleged lack of novelty.
