News Tech: (Reuters) – Gene-sequencing company 10x Genomics Inc sued startup Parse Biosciences Inc in Delaware federal court Wednesday, alleging its gene-analysis kits infringe patents related to 10x’s Chromium platform.

A Parse spokesperson on Thursday said the company will fight the lawsuit and “will not let competition prevent us from making single-cell genomics more accessible to the broader community.” The Seattle-based company raised more than $41.5 million in startup funding in February.

Pleasanton, California-based 10x said in the lawsuit that its competitor has “made clear that it intends nothing less than to copy 10x’s complete lineup of single-cell products wholesale.”

A 10x spokesperson said Thursday that the company has invested more than $1 billion in developing its technologies and will “vigorously defend our products and broad intellectual property portfolio.”

10x settled a multi-front genomics patent fight with rival Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc last year. It also sued biotech company NanoString Technologies last year for allegedly infringing its patents, in a case that is still ongoing.

The case is 10x Genomics Inc v. Parse Biosciences Inc, U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, No. 1:22-cv-01117. For 10x: Nicholas Groombridge of Paul Weiss Rifkind Wharton & Garrison

For Parse: not available (NOTE: This story has been updated with comment from Parse and 10x.)
