Spectronics Corp., Westbury, N.Y., filed suit against UView Ultraviolet Systems Inc., Mississauga, Ont., for infringement of its U.S. patent No. 5,167,140. The suit resulted from UView's recent introduction of its disposable "inline" capsules, the sale of which, Spectronics asserts, constitutes infringement of its Spectroline Glo-Stick dye capsules patent.
