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
