BioSepra and Sepracor have filed a claim in a US district court against PerSeptive Biosystems, alleging unfair competition in connection with BioSepra's patented HyperD chromatography media. The suit, filed in the Massachusetts District Court, claims PerSeptive used lawsuits alleging HyperD infringed its patents related to the company's "perfusion chromatography" to compete unfairly with BioSepra (see Clinica No 641, p 11). "The unfair competition claim will remind PerSeptive that the use of lawsuits as a marketing tool is inappropriate," says BioSepra's president, Jean-Marie Vogel.
