Novelty Search

Novelty searches can be used in a wide range of connections

  • As a clarification of whether an invention is new
  • For evaluating invention disclosures
  • As a basis for a well-founded patent application

Product characteristics

We search international patent databases and relevant international non-patent literature on the basis of a description prepared by the customer. The presise scope and depth of the search will be agreed upon in each individual case.

Upon conclusion of the search, a report with the following contents will be made:

  • Specification of the aim of the search
  • Description of the scope of the search
  • Overview of references found divided into categories depending on their relevance
  • Examiners comments on why the reference is perceived to be relevant
  • Detailed specification of the relevant parts of the references
  • Search strategy and databases used for the search

Specifications needed

We need a short description of the invention that specifies the relevant technical features, i.e an invention disclosure, or a provisional patent application.

Drawings, chemical structures etc can often be very helpful.
