Molecular devices wins patent case in Europe
Molecular Devices, LLC announced that its European Patent No. 1802752 titled “Parallel Patch Clamp System” was upheld by the European Patent Office in its original form, following a recent Opposition Proceeding.
Molecular Devices’ patent went through Opposition Proceedings before the Opposition Division of the European Patent Office as a result of a challenge from an analytical instrument company. The European Patent Office concluded that Molecular Devices’ patent, whose claims are directed to systems and methods of making high-throughput electrophysiological measurements, is valid as originally issued.
“Our robust portfolio of over 300 issued patents and numerous pending patent applications are proof of our commitment to develop new and meaningful workflow solutions enabling landmark scientific achievements. We will continue to invest in and defend our intellectual property.” said Greg Milosevich, President of Molecular Devices.
“We are delighted that the Opposition Division has acknowledged the inventive concept of this technology. We are determined to protect the intellectual property assets that cover our unique technology from any challenge,” Milosevich concluded.

Rapid determination of the growth of cell lines is important for a number of processes, such as optimization of cell culture conditions and verification of monoclonality. However, conventional techniques are time-consuming, subjective and may risk interference with cell growth. Save time an ... more
The technology in ClonePix Systems removes the need for serial dilution or cell-sorting techniques. It allows monoclonal populations of high-secreting cells to be established in a much shorter time frame, removing many of the bottlenecks associated with producer cell-line optimization and d ... more
