Caliper Life Sciences hit with IP lawsuit
Caliper Life Sciences has been sued for patent infringement by Carestream Health Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin Madison Division, according to a news release from Carestream.
The lawsuit alleges that the IVIS Lumina XR System from Caliper, a Hopkinton-based provider of tools and services for drug discovery, infringes on Carestream Health’s patent on multimodal in-vivo imaging.
Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream Health notes on its website that it provides “medical and dental imaging systems and information technology solutions; molecular imaging systems; and non-destructive testing products.”
Caliper has 30 days to respond in court.
