GOTHENBURG, Sweden, February 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellectricon AB today announced that it has resumed its litigation against Fluxion Biosciences, Inc. Cellectricon filed the lawsuit in July 2009 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California alleging infringement of several United States patents issued or licensed to Cellectricon for microfluidic technology used in Cellectricon's state-of-the-art ion channel drug screening solution, the Dynaflow(R)HT System. Cellectricon's U.S. Patents Nos. 7,390,650, 7,470,518 and 7,563,614 have been asserted in the litigation, as well as U.S. Patent No. 5,376,252, which is owned by Gyros, and licensed to Cellectricon.

Annelie Skafte Persson, Cellectricon's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Cellectricon invents and develops advanced cell-based microfluidic screening solutions for applications in drug discovery and basic research. Cellectricon has an extensive intellectual property portfolio with novel cell-based screening technologies based on fifteen years of world-renowned research.
