Depending on your needs, we can conduct a non-patent literature (NPL) prior art search, although such searches can difficult to search and be expensive.

Although we will start by using conventional patent prior art database search techniques, we will leave no stone unturned.Patents are one of the most thoroughly indexed and documented forms of literature, allowing specific prior art search information to be retrieved and reviewed with considerable accuracy.The patents issued or patent applications published by the USPTO, EPO, PCT, and JPO cover more than 90% of patents and applications filed worldwide.However, most national laws recognize grounds such as publication of the invention prior to the priority date of the application for patent, sales of the invention, prior public knowledge, or prior public use.An exhaustive prior art search will be directed at each of these separate sources of prior art. The most common sources of prior art are patents, published patent applications, and non-patent literature, such as journals, books, academic work, product literature, and internet publications.
