LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
The United States District Court for District of Delaware has ruled that the patent asserted in CareDx’s patent infringement case against Eurofins Viracor is invalid. Eurofins Viracor is very pleased that the Court has agreed with its arguments and issued judgment in Eurofins Viracor’s favor in this challenge to Eurofins’ critically important diagnostic tools to manage organ rejection risk.
Eurofins Viracor’s offerings include Viracor TRAC® Kidney dd-cfDNA, Viracor TRAC® Heart dd-cfDNA and Viracor TRAC® Lung dd-cfDNA. In related innovation for transplant patients earlier this week, Eurofins Viracor’s affiliate, Transplant Genomics, Inc. (“TGI”), launched OmniGraf™, which combines the TruGraf® blood gene expression test and Viracor TRAC® donor-derived cell-free DNA assays. For renal transplant recipients, OmniGraf™ Kidney represents the first diagnostic tool that combines cell free DNA and gene expression data. When combined with TGI’s proprietary technology and machine learning, the test offers patients and clinicians an early and accurate assessment of kidney transplant rejection.
