“After a very thorough search for a new CEO, we are thrilled that Christine will join Kezzler as our new leader. Christine brings tremendous pedigree and energy in building and leading early stage companies. Our focus on scaling the business into a more mature organization is well aligned with her previous experience.

Prior to Sweet Protection, Christine was executive vice president, Growth Initiatives, Commodities and Energy at Thomson Reuters. This position was preceded by her role as executive vice president and director of News and Conferences at Point Carbon AS, a leading news and analytics provider for global energy and climate markets. She was part of growing the company from early phase until it was successfully sold to Thomson Reuters in 2010. Christine received her Masters in Economics from Norges Handelshoyskole in Bergen and holds undergraduate degrees from the University of Bergen and University of Oslo.

“I am very excited to join Kezzler at a time where digitalization of products is at an inflection point. The Kezzler technology platform leveraged through partnerships with leading packaging, licensing and management consulting organizations holds great promise. I look forward to working with the Board and all of our employees. Implementation of the Kezzler product platform will significantly contribute to an increasingly transparent product value chain with no room for fraud or counterfeiting. For all real brand companies as well as government agencies, this should be their core focus going forward,” commented Christine Charlotte Akselsen.

Oxford Nanopore Prevails in Patent Ruling against Pacific Biosciences22.1.2019 17:04Pressemelding

Today the European Patent Office revoked Pacific Biosciences patent EP3045542 with claims to a single molecule sequencing process wherein two strands of DNA are linked by a connecting nucleic acid. The validity of the patent had been challenged by Oxford Nanopore. The EPO ruled that the claims to a single molecule sequencing process were unsupported in the application and that the application only supported a template-directed synthesis sequencing method. As Pacific Biosciences were unwilling to accept this change, the patent was revoked. The decision by the EPO is consistent with a recent decision by the International Trade Commission (ITC) to limit the claims of a related Pacific Biosciences US patent to template-directed synthesis.
