Patent Searches

We understand the need of an hour which is thorough analysis of your ideas/concepts/innovations. We do worldwide patent searches in 120+ countries covering different Languages in over 50+ domains. Our experts do searches on Paid or Non-paid Patent databases which provides to determine patentability of a concept, figure out the latest trend in a particular technology, understand competitive technologies, mitigate infringement risk while launching a new product, to find out unexplored area of research to develop a new technology. We worked on patent searches with all sort of players in the ecosystem . We provide different kinds of Patent Searches for better and effective analysis for your innovations:-

  • State of the art search
    A state of the art search is the broad- ranging patent search and helps to gain a complete overview of a particular technical field. A State of the Art Search is used to understand the procedure both- IP and corporate level – and can very well serve the long term benefits. The plan is to achieve a big picture of the state of play in a defined technology area.
  • Patentability search and Analysis
    To obtain a patent protection, a potential invention must be new (novel), useful, and non-obvious. A Patentability Search, called a Patent Novelty Search is a search of prior art (the body of pre-existing knowledge) conducted on behalf of a potential patent applicant. Basically, a patentability search is performed before a patent application is prepared. Moreover to determining patentability, this search will also:
    • Improve the patent drafter to write a patent application that enhance defines the inventive contribution of the new product over the prior art.
    • Gear up prosecution by preempting examiner rejections.
    • Improve the defensibility of the future patent by ensuring that the Examiner considers the most relevant prior art during prosecution. Ataraxia IP comprehensive patentability search and analysis of an invention involves searching worldwide databases for relevant prior art references based on identified novel elements of the invention and analyzing each of the references against the novel elements.
  • Patent validity and Invalidation search
    A Patent Validity Search or Patent Invalidity Search is an exhaustive Prior Art Search conducted after patent issuance. A patent validity/invalidity search is mainly conducted for the satisfaction of the client who is more concerned about his product to infringe a particular patent. The patent validity & Invalidation Search is always conducted to ensure about the date limitations of the subject patent. At, Ataraxia IP, we conduct these searches in subscribed databases, gather information from prosecution history or file wrapper and relevant literature.
  • Freedom to operate search
    Freedom to Operate searches (also called Clearance Search or Right to Use Search) identify potential patent barriers to the commercialization of products or technologies or services. Freedom to Operate (FTO) search is done to determine if we have complete freedom to operate. Meaning, to determine the risks of infringement of patents in a particular region/country so that one can take a particular action, like launching, developing, or producing a product or service, without infringing the IP rights of others. Ataraxia IP will identify published applications and unexpired patents that could possibly indicate a risk of infringing upon an already disclosed invention, product or process. FTO search will also help clients to determine if the product or service they are pursuing is in the public domain. At Ataraxia IP, region country-specific comprehensive FTO searches are conducted by technical experts having extensive patent search experience along with various patent search strategies,wherein pending patent applications as well as granted patents are analyzed.
  • Knock out search
    KnockOut Search is our 4-hour prior art search [includes both patent and non-patent literature] with minimal reporting format and that provides you closest possible prior art results to an idea that you or your team or your client just brainstormed. The search performs at an initial phase of ideation towards the overall development of the product. The Knockout search is specifically to do a quick patent and non-patent documents that may challenge the validity of the claims of a subject in order to discover prior art at the patent examination during the first examination report it an invaluable tool when it comes to litigation and licensing related negotiations.
  • Landscape search
    Patent Landscape helps to get an overview of a particular technology or domain, its evolution, the competitors, chronological developments in the domain and provide details on latest trends and specific development in the industry.
    • Technology Strength
    • Technology white Space Technology
    • Leaders and their IP Strategies
    • Technological Positioning of companies and their chronological changes

  • White space literature search
    The White space analysis search gives a better insight of what has not been explored till date in respect of a particular technology. This analysis of the technology and its area of growth where the R&D can be executed in a competitive edge and gives an incremental innovation for new concepts. Our thorough analysis & white-space report of technology enable our clients to identify the future potential research areas. Our expert professionals can very well prepare the draft report with intensive research and analytics.
  • Chemical structure search
    The Chemical Structure Search helps mainly to discover chemical entities or similar to chemical compounds of interest. This search is more reliable with the help of relevant synonyms of the chemical structure we are proceeding for. We provide an effective search strategy used in patent databases to dig out each relevant prior art reference. Chemical structures are discovered by doing an exact search, substructure search, family search, fragmentation search and other means including searching by molecular formula, CAS Registry Number, ring size and other chemical attributes.
  • Bio sequence search
    The biotechnology is a fast-paced field and so the patents related to bio-sequences. This includes nucleotide sequences (DNA or RNA) or amino acids sequences (peptides or proteins). Searching biological sequences in patents required special skill sets.

Patent Drafting

Patent Drafting is an art of creating the concepts/idea in a detailed document regarding the invention. This enhances the drafting/writing specification containing the aspects of the invention in the field of invention, background, summary, detailed description, concept drawings, abstract and patent claims for which protection is sought.

Importance of Patent Drafting

It is crucial that drafter perceived the invention in detail, claims of usefulness and distinguish features from similar existing products or processes. If there would be any gap in the drafting application, this will increase the chances of the application being denied or delayed unnecessarily by the Patent office.

  • Provisional
    The provisional patent specification is a basic draft which is filed to secure a priority date for invention/Idea. Provisional Specification is filed when an inventor is about to finalise his invention. Provisional Specification is not a full fledged information of the invention. It contains several descriptions of the invention, its field of application and anticipated result.
Why is Provisional Filling important?

A provisional application will be crafted in a short span of time which will give a user an advantage of ‘First-to-file’ which means that the inventor who first files provisional specification which secures the invention and targets the similar concept for a patent being applied later by another inventor. Also, an advantage of filing provisional applications is that the inventor will get time to arrange funds and test the concept feasibility in the market.
