MADISON, Wis.--()--A recent settlement between Promega Corporation and Genovis AB maintains full freedom for the continued offering of Promega’s IdeS and IdeZ Proteases for markets worldwide. In November of 2014, Genovis and Hansa Medical AB filed a patent infringement suit in the U.S. While the details of the settlement are confidential, it allows for continued manufacture, sale and support of IdeS and IdeZ by Promega.

These products are used by scientists worldwide for a host of applications including early stage characterization of potential therapeutic antibodies that may someday be important for treating different diseases. The settlement allows that work to continue without interruption.
