SciTech Patent Art (SPA)’s Patent Prosecution Tracking Tool allows you to track competitive strategic interests

January 29, 2020

Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals and Medical devices are among the fastest growing industries. Fast-growing industries are research-intensive and invest a significant proportion of their revenues in research & development. These investments typically have a long payback period. Therefore, systematic due diligence of competitive interests is much needed during the technology development life-cycle to ensure that the eventual outcome does not miss the intended market OR some paths to commercialization are not pre-empted by competition.

SPA’s web-enabled Patent Prosecution Tracking Tool provides timely updates on the evolution of a patent application, such as office actions, claim amendments and other bibliographic data changes. The tool facilitates easy viewing of the history of the claim amendments, from the published application to an issued patent, such as word changes made to the claims by the examiner and agreed-to by the inventor.

Key features of the patent prosecution tool:

  • Prosecution history readily available for viewing
  • Amendments viewable in easy-to-understand format in the form of ‘track changes’
  • Claim tree that clearly indicates claim dependency
  • Shared across global teams quickly
  • Includes collaborative features, such as adding comments or uploading attachments
  • Contains periodic (bi-weekly / monthly) updates as required

SPA’s Patent Prosecution Tracking Tool is currently used by many clients in the areas of pharma, biotech and medical devices industries to understand competitive strategic interests, plan oppositions and obtain information on the patent office’s latest thinking on claims in a specific technology area. Please contact SPA at if you want to learn more about this service.
