Patent Search Services

Patent Search Services India

A patent / literature search is performed for various purposes ranging from assessing the patentability of an invention to analyzing risks in product launches and understanding the landscape in which a new technology operates. While perusing patent databases is straightforward, culling out appropriate and meaningful information from the vast number of patent and non-patent documents available and the thousands of documents requires special research skills, technology insight and a thorough understanding of the patent system. Once a search is performed and relevant prior art is shortlisted, making sense of the data based on the purpose requires an in-depth insight into patent law, superior analytical skills and ability to clearly present the same.

BananaIP’s Patent Search and Prior Art Analysis team brings technology expertise, patent knowledge and domain experience together, to perform value-added patent searches. Access to proprietary patent and literature databases, proprietary technology, and tailor-made presentation tools allow us to provide quality search services. Our process driven approach, time based delivery and copyrighted templates set us apart from other service providers.

BananaIP’s head office is located in Bangalore and we have a presence in Chennai, Kochi, Hyderabad, New Delhi, Mumbai, and the rest of India.
