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

Devising a comprehensive search strategy in PatBase

Delivered from the perspective of an experienced patent analyst, this presentation discusses the challenges in creating a comprehensive search strategy and uses two case studies to demonstrate the features and functionality in PatBase which help in creating a comprehensive search strategy. A prior art case study using a hypothetical new drug invention for skin cancer and a competitive intelligence case study on the topic of reverse osmosis are used to demonstrate the following features:

  • PatBase Thesaurus to craft a comprehensive strategy in English and in a number of foreign languages
  • Classification finder to identify relevant classification codes
  • Non-Latin search functionality to search native and machine translated non-Latin text
  • Non-Patent Literature module to search over 12 public resources of non-patent literature
  • Chemical Explorer to interrogate the full text of patents for chemical entities
  • Semantic searching to identify similar patents
  • PatBase Analytics to identify the key assignees, inventors and fields of interest
  • Citation Explorer to analyse the content and relevance of patent citations
