Our scientists are inventors on numerous solid form patents and patent applications for our clients. As such, we have provided technical and legal support for hundreds of patent challenges worldwide. Applying multiple techniques, including X-ray diffractometry, spectroscopy, microscopy and thermal analysis, we describe the important attributes of solid forms and provide scientifically valid interpretation.

When our screening services discover new crystalline forms, we provide reports containing experimental details, high-quality data and meaningful interpretation. From these reports, we assemble technical packages designed for ease of use in preparing patent applications. Solid form patents tend to be data heavy compared to other pharmaceutical patent applications, so this format provides ready access to the data. As a result, patent attorneys save time and you lower your legal costs while preparing the applications for submission.

We routinely assist attorneys and agents with the science and technical muscle supporting the patent applications of our mutual clients. Our experts can help patent professionals draft effective and comprehensive claims based on the invention and the characterization data. In addition to data, we provide clear scientific support throughout the entire application and prosecution process.
