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.
