Sequenom Inc. (SQNM) confirmed that the United States District Court for the Northern District of California has denied a motion by Sequenom for a preliminary injunction against Ariosa Diagnostics.
Earlier this year, Sequenom filed the motion against Ariosa (formerly Aria) Diagnostics to stop the company from making, using, selling or offering for sale, importing or exporting, infringing tests for detecting fetal chromosomal aneuploidy, such as Ariosa's Harmony Prenatal Test™, pending the ultimate resolution of the litigation.
Sequenom said its request for preliminary injunctive relief followed its counterclaims filed in the lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, which allege that Ariosa is infringing U.S. Patent. The case is ongoing and Sequenom will be seeking a full trial on the merits of its claims and all relief, including damages and a permanent injunction against Ariosa.
