For expediting the process of patent examination, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) launched a new Accelerated Examination Program on August 25, 2006. For qualifying the application for the accelerated examination program, applicant must conduct a pre-examination search and provide an Accelerated Examination Support Document (AESD) along with other prescribed requirements. Ingenious e-brain solutions offers preparation of AESD fulfilling all requirements laid down by the USPTO such as :

  • Classifying filed of search according to United States Patent Classification system (USPC) first in highly relevant classes subsequently in other relevant classes
  • Searching of the US patents and published applications that covers the subject matter of the independent claims using terms recognized in the art with their broadest reasonable interpretation
  • Searching of non-US patent documents as per the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) minimum documentation requirements
  • Searching of non-patent literature via text searching of databases, trade publications, and search engines as prescribed in the USPTO search templates
  • Conducting nucleic acid or protein sequence searching as prescribed in the USPTO search templates
  • Explaining how each claim is patentable over the reference
  • Identifying all the limitations in the claims that are disclosed by the cited reference and specifying where the limitation is disclosed in the cited reference
