BREAKING UPC NEWS: 10x.Genomics wins preliminary injunction against NanoString

The Unified Patent Court's Munich Local Division (Presiding Judge: Dr. Matthias Zigann) just announced a preliminary injunction in 10x Genomics v. NanoString. That is the case that was heard two weeks ago. The parallel case heard today raises some new questions, particularly also concerning urgency, with a decision scheduled for October 10.

I may add more detail later. For now I just wanted to share the information at the earliest opportunity. This is the first announcement of a UPC injunction in open court. In Vienna last week, an announcement was also made, but an injunction was not granted.

An appeal to the UPC's Court of Appeal in Luxembourg (Presiding Judge: Dr. Klaus Grabinski) pretty much a given.
