In a written judgment dated 5 June 2020, the Stockholm District Court, Patent and Market Court, rejected Copan Italia S.p.A.’s claim of patent infringement against Svenska Laboratorieförsäljningen, LABFAB.  Copan’s claims against LABFAB are based on LABFAB’s distribution and sale of diagnostic test kits that include flocked swabs manufactured by Puritan Medical Products, LLC.  The Swedish proceedings did not address the validity of Copan’s European Patent EP 1 608 268 B2 and were limited to the PurFlock Ultra line of flocked swabs.
