Spectros Corporation Protects Its Cool White LED Spectroscopy Technology Against Alleged Infringement by Thermo Fisher Scientific
Date:5/6/2009

PORTOLA VALLEY, Calif., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Spectros Corporation (Portola Valley, CA) filed in Federal District Court today against Thermo Fisher Scientific (NYSE: TMO), alleging infringement of Spectros' spectroscopy patent family by TMO's Nanodrop 3300 product. Spectros invented and commercialized solid-state, broadband, integrated spectroscopy light sources based on white LEDs, and incorporated these into its flagship T-Stat product, replacing hot light bulbs with cool illuminator sources. The Nanodrop 3300, introduced to market after T-Stat, also incorporates a white LED for spectroscopy. Thermo Fisher promotes this feature as "unconventional," yet TMO holds no published or issued patents covering this approach. Spectros previously approached TMO regarding specific infringed claims on US Patent no. 6,711,426, without success.

"We are surprised that Thermo Fisher Scientific has continued to market devices incorporating our novel and proprietary technology. We trust that, over time, TMO will appreciate the validity and value of the broad, early optical biotechnology intellectual property portfolio held by Spectros," notes David Benaron, CEO.

Spectros and its affiliates have over 80 issued and pending patents in the U.S., Europe, and Japan, forming one of the largest biophotonics intellectual property collections. Spectros' core patents cover optical spectroscopy, fluorimetry, and imaging for use in blood analysis, contrast-targeted cancer surgery, lab-on-chip systems, and benchtop life-sciences equipment. Red Herring reviewed Spectros in a recent market report in which the journal predicted the total market for optical products in optical molecular detection, imaging, and treatment guidance will grow to $12 billion annually over the next five years.
