Effective and Efficient FTO searching on PatBase

Delivered from the perspective of an experienced biotech patent analyst, this workshop discusses the features and functionality of PatBase and other Minesoft products which enable efficient and effective FTO (“infringement”) analysis. From the development of a comprehensive search strategy to the analysis and monitoring of results, a biotech related case study is used to demonstrate a number of features and techniques including:

  • Thesauri to craft a comprehensive strategy
  • Search fields to focus on specific sections within a patent and on specific countries
  • Customized displays to concentrate on certain countries of interest
  • Advanced highlighting schemes to efficiently review large numbers of documents
  • Use of legal status information to quickly identify “active” patent families
  • Use of alerts to monitor families of interest and to watch for new publications and citations

Efficient and effective patent landscaping using PatBase: a case study

Sophisticated built-in Analytics software at no extra cost

Sophisticated built-in Analytics software at no extra cost

Delivered from the perspective of an experienced patent searcher who recently joined the Minesoft team, this presentation will discuss the features and functionality of PatBase which enable the efficient creation of clean and reliable patent landscape analyses.

From the development of a comprehensive search strategy to the analysis and visualization of results, a case study on 3D printing is used to demonstrate a number of features and techniques including:

  • Thesauri to craft a comprehensive strategy
  • Citation ranking to identify the most pertinent patents in the technical area of interest
  • Advanced keyword highlighting to efficiently review large numbers of documents
  • Use of the “Similar” function to find related documents and PatBase Analytics to:
    • Help build a comprehensive strategy
    • Visualise the results of the landscape analysis
