Patentability Search Services (Novelty Search)

At “Wissen Research” we assist inventors planning to protect their inventions/innovations. Patentability searches aid in the verification of the invention uniqueness and  non-obviousness, by identifying the most relevant prior-arts. These searches are critical in determining whether or not to invest in a new patent application, and they allow R&D teams to improve the invention or design.

The goal of a patentability search is to determine whether or not an invention has a probability of being patented, based on the universal criteria of novelty and non-obviousness. It includes searching both patent (active, expired, and granted) and non-patent literature for references that are relevant and connected to the current invention as prior art. Our moto – if the prior art is published, we will be documenting it in our report.

How do we perform Patentability Search?

Patentability searches are conducted by our experienced search professionals on online patent search tools viz. Orbit, Derwent innovation, NCBI, etc. using specific keywords, classifications, citations of the prior art, and all.
