Intellectual Property

DArT technology owns a patent family covering DArT called "Genotyping by hybridisation", based on US Patent no 6,713,258 B2. We are using Intellectual Property Rights to attract collaborators and partners to our network rather than restrict access to the technology. We see patents only as one component of an integrated technology package that comprises other essential components such as know-how and DArT-specific software.


Non-exclusive licenses to the patents are available, as part of the technology package, or on their own. Licenses to patents and other forms of Intellectual Property (know-how) will be provided to members of the DArT Network in a fair and equitable manner. Please read more about our network philosophy and joining the network.
