Nashua company sued over breath testing copyright
Metabolic Solutions, which has been in business since 1990, supplies and processes test kits for health care professionals and individual consumers.
Although neither side would talk about the suit, which will be heard in Florida, Mark Stein, a lawyer for Commonwealth, said his client signed an exclusive agreement with Cedar Sinai Medical Center, which has held a patent on the tests since 2004.
Metabolic Solutions also holds several patents on various types of breath testing and analysis and has been awarded several small business research grants.
