Intellectual property relates to making shrinkable polystyrene diagnostic chip solutions. Microfluidics involves channelling fluids into tiny passages where they can be processed. The concept is analogous to the development of transistors, which made smaller, more powerful electronics devices possible.
Technology involves the creation and manufacture of certain complex chips or microfluidic diagnostic tools and measuring devices on a larger micro-scale on shrinkable, pre-stressed polystyrene sheets (or other plastic-derived materials such as PolyShrinkâ„¢) and then shrinking them down significantly in size through a patent-pending process. Our research indicates, to date, that the technology and materials under development by Shrink result in a relatively â€œuniformâ€ shrinking process, resulting in a â€œtrueâ€ and undisturbed end product that retains its vital properties even at the micro or nano-scale.

The Court also granted Licensor a permanent injunction against the Licensees GEM microfluidic chips and associated consumables that were found to infringe the patents.
The GEM microfluidic chips are Gel bead in Emulsion microfluidic chips.
US Patent No. 8,871,444, titled 'In vitro evolution in microfluidic systems.'
This patent covers techniques for detecting enzymatic reactions in microfluidic droplets and is part of Licensor,s comprehensive portfolio of droplet intellectual property.'
With this judgement, Licensee is permitted to continue to sell its GEM microfluidic chips and associated consumables for use with historical installed base of instruments.
