Agilent Technologies Files Litigation to Protect High-Performance Liquid Chromatography Intellectual Property

06-Feb-2008

Agilent Technologies announced it has filed litigation against Advanced Materials Technology Inc. (AMT) in the Delaware Court of Chancery to protect confidential and proprietary information relating to its high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) technology.

The complaint contends that three former Agilent employees, now with AMT, breached the confidentiality of their employment agreements, misappropriated Agilent trade secrets and breached their fiduciary duties with respect to Agilent's HPLC intellectual property. The litigation filing alleges that Agilent trade secrets and confidential information were used by AMT in developing its Halo HPLC columns.

"Agilent is built on a long-standing foundation of integrity and high ethical standards by our employees in both their external and internal interactions," said Mike McMullen, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Chemical Analysis Solutions Unit. "This is an unfortunate, but reasonable and necessary action to vigorously protect our intellectual property."
