Sequence searches

Our access to unique databases combined with our expertise that interprets the results gives you high quality sequence searches.

The result

In our Sequence search, as in most of our search services, we provide you with an evaluation of the results.

Our searches

The commission is carried out by one or more of PRV’s patent examiners who are specialized within the areas of biotechnology and sequence searches. The search is carried out with the help of the search tool STN. Via STN, we have for example, access to CA registry, DGENE, USGENE and PCTGENE for sequence searches. This gives us access to both patent and non-patent literature, including articles from periodicals. All of our searches are carried out with a secure connection.

In order to carry out sequence searches, we need the sequences that are to be searched in electronic form.

The benefit of the service

In many of the services that can be commissioned from us, it may be of interest to include searches for protein and/or nucleotide sequences.

Additional service: Monitoring services

Please bear in mind that a result from a search reflects the situation of today. However, the patent documentation increases with 10 000’s of newly published patent documents every week, a fact which of course could have an effect on your search result. If you should be in need of continuous information – talk to us and we will prepare a monitoring profile.
