POLYMER TECHNOLOGY PERMANENTLY ENJOINED FROM MAKING, SELLING GLUCOSE TEST STRIP that was found to infringe patents held by Johnson & Johnson's LifeScan subsidiary. In a May 31 ruling, Judge Barbara Rothstein of the U.S. District Court for Western Washington ruled that Polymer's First Choice blood glucose test strip, which is intended for use with LifeScan's One Touch glucose meter, infringes three patents held by the J&J subsidiary. Polymer marketed the off-brand test strip as a low-cost alternative to replacement test strips supplied by LifeScan.
