W. R. Grace Files Patent Infringement Suit Against Teledyne Isco

W. R. Grace & Co. (GRA) said Monday that the company, through its unit Alltech Associates Inc., recently filed a lawsuit in a U.S. Court against Teledyne Technologies Inc., doing business as Teledyne Isco of Lincoln Neb., for infringement of four Grace U.S. Patents that cover its proprietary Reveleris X2 flash chromatography system.

The suit was filed on March 15 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware.

Flash chromatography is a process to separate target molecules and purify a product from a complex mixture in minimal time, an important step in a broad range of scientific applications.

Grace introduced the Reveleris flash chromatography system in 2009, bringing new advanced capabilities to flash chromatography. Since then, Grace has been granted four Reveleris-related U.S. Patents, in addition to many industry awards.

Grace is a leading global supplier of catalysts; engineered and packaging materials; and specialty construction chemicals and building materials.
