In the Medical Device Daily article "Hold the Mayo? Patent on groundbreaking test swept aside," partner David A. Gass commented the Federal Circuit's decision in Ariosa Diagnostics Inc. v. Sequenom Inc.

"The claims at issue in Sequenom were pretty general, [David A. Gass] told Medical Device Daily. Perhaps if the claims were more detailed, they'd pass the patent eligibility test. But for now, it remains to be seen how the Federal Circuit would rule on more narrowly drafted claims."
