Licensee Licensed Product shall mean an Licensee Licensed Instrument and/or an Licensee Licensed LabCard, as applicable.
Licensee Licensed Instrument shall mean an instrument, add-on module, software or hardware including those specifically identified in the agreement, but excluding, in any event, any microfluidic Chip, (a) the manufacture, use, in the manner intended, or sale of which, by Licensee or any third party, would infringe a Valid Claim of a Patent in the Ramsey Patent Family in the country of such manufacture, use or sale, absent a license, or (b) that is designed or used, in the manner intended, by Licensee or any third party, to perform a method that would infringe a Valid Claim of a Patent in the Ramsey Patent Family in the country where such method is performed, absent a license.
Licensee Licensed LabCard shall mean a microfluidic chip or card, regardless of its size or thickness (Chip), constructed from a polymer or any other material that is not silica based, regardless of weather such Chip contains a Double T Structure or a Cross Structure or has covered or uncovered channels including but not limited to the types of Chips illustrated, (a) the manufacture, use, in the manner intended, or sale of which, by Licensee or any third party, would infringe a Valid Claim of a Patent in the Ramsey Patent Family in the country of such manufacture, use or sale, absent a license, or (b) that is designed or used, in the manner intended, by Licensee or any third party, to perform a method that would infringe a Valid Claim of a Patent in the Ramsey Patent Family in the country where such method is performed, absent a license.
The Parties have agreed to settle all patent litigation and cross-license their microfluidic lab-on-a-chip systems. The devices are used to speed sampling in bioanalysis and genomic and pharmaceutical research.
Licensor's LabChip technology enables experiments that ordinarily require laboratories full of equipment and people to be conducted on a chip small enough to fit in the palm of a child's hand. The chip contains a network of microscopic channels that move fluids and chemicals electrostatically in order to perform experiments.
