- Certain Microfluidic Systems and Components Thereof and Products Containing Same (ITC Inv. No 337-TA-1100) (representing 10X Genomics, Inc.) (Respondent Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc.) (Feb. 2020)
Tensegrity secured a major victory on behalf of 10X in this patent infringement matter against Bio-Rad before the International Trade Commission. Following hearing, each of 10X’s four asserted patents concerning gene sequencing technologies were found valid, and Bio-Rad was found to infringe three 10X patents in violation of Section 337. In February 2020, the ITC issued a Limited Exclusion Order and Cease and Desist Order prohibiting the importation of infringing Bio-Rad microfluidic products into the United States.
Tensegrity currently represents 10X against Bio-Rad in both plaintiff and defense actions in federal district court for the District of Massachusetts.
