The granted licence, which will remain valid for the lifetime of the patents, provides Illumina with certain rights with respect to SNP genotyping.

"OGT continues to develop its licensing programme in the United States and is pleased to licence Illumina to our sequence variation patents which is as part of OGT’s broad patent portfolio," said Sue Sutton, Vice President Licensing North America at OGT.

Sutton continued, "OGT’s technology combined with Illumina’s BeadArray™ technology gives customers access to an extremely powerful SNP detection platform.”
