Patent Search

Patentability Opinion:

Before going through the process of filing a patent, an inventor needs to know if there are any other patents or publication that are similar to the inventor’s invention.  

The patent search starts with obtaining information regarding the differences between the inventions and the state of the art, the parts of the structure of the invention that can be changed without affecting the way the invention is used, the  changes that can be made in the materials and methods for making the invention without affecting the structure; and the key structural features that produce the result of the invention.

The patent search is then perform to find any existing and similar patents and publications, using various data bases (USPTO, CIPO, EPO, IEEExplore, Pubmed, & etc). 


A patentability opinion is generated by comparing the existing information with the invention.
