    • Ilumina (NASDAQ:ILMN) and Sequenom (NASDAQ:SQNM) agree to settle all pending infringement claims and other disputes between Sequenom and Verinata Health. The companies will pool their owned and in-licensed intellectual property (IP) pertaining to noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT), including patents that remain subject to ongoing interference proceedings.
    • Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Ilumina will have exclusive worldwide rights to use the pooled IP to develop and sell in vitro diagnostic kits for NIPT and to license third party laboratories wishing to develop and sell their own laboratory-developed NIPT tests under the collection of pooled patents. It will make a $50M upfront payment to Sequenom in addition to payments from the pooled structure through 2020.
    • Ilumina CEO Jay Flatley says, "The patent pool established through this agreement eliminates confusion over the IP property rights and provides a single point of contact for those wishing to license this IP for NIPT testing."
    • Separately, the companies entered into an amended supply agreement whereby Ilumina will supply Sequenom with instruments and reagents for an additional five years.
    • SQNM is up 26% premarket on robust volume.
