Beckman Coulter Enters Commercial Dispute with Quidel to Sell BNP Directly

BREA, California, Nov. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Beckman Coulter is committed to ensuring customers receive the highest quality assays, on-time, to help healthcare and laboratory professionals provide better patient care. To further these goals, Beckman Coulter plans in the future to sell directly to its customers a natriuretic peptide assay for its Access Family of Immunoassay Systems. Currently, Beckman Coulter customers have access to a BNP assay which, although developed and manufactured by Beckman Coulter, is sold exclusively by Quidel and its designated distributors. Quidel took over this commercial role as a result of its recent transaction with Alere.  Today, Beckman Coulter requested that the San Diego courts in California clarify and enforce Beckman Coulter's rights to sell a natriuretic peptide assay directly to its customers. While this legal matter is being resolved, Beckman Coulter's manufacture and supply of the TRIAGE® BNP assay to Quidel and Quidel's customer relationships are expected to continue as usual, and customers can therefore rely on continued and ongoing supply of high-quality BNP for use on Beckman Coulter analyzers.
