PLEASANTON, Calif.--()--10X Genomics, a provider of an innovative genomics platform, announced today that it is aware of allegations of patent infringement made to the press by RainDance Technologies, Inc. CEO and Co-founder of 10X Genomics, Serge Saxonov, PhD, issued this response:

"We have not been served with a copy of the complaint. However, based upon the assertions in RainDance Technologies' press announcement, we are firmly of the view that our products do not infringe any claims of any of the asserted patents, and to the extent that RainDance is attempting to extend those claims to try to cover our products, we believe that the claims are invalid. We are confident that we will establish both of these points in vigorously defending ourselves in any suit that may arise."
