What does Ambercite do?

Saves you hours in time while finding patents missed by other search tools

We would like to mention how great we think the Ambercite search tool performs. We had the opportunity to test it now already for a case we are working on and it performs brilliantly.

Dr Patrick Daum, M.Sc., B.Sc, European Patent Attorney

Ambercite is a leap forward in efficiency and organization. I work very fast, through a number of patents, with this platform, and it has significantly improved my patent research workflow. It allows me to visualize and catalog prior art in a way that is intuitive and more closely resembles my mental map. Thank you for giving me the gift of time, and freeing me up to focus on the surgical and medical treatment of women's cancer, and the research and innovations we are aggressively pursuing.

How can you be sure that you have found all of the relevant patents in your patent search?

With conventional keyword, class code or semantic searching, there is always a risk that relevant and important patents can be missed that may used different keywords or class codes to what you were expecting.

However with the unique 'AmberView' provided by the Ambercite tools of Cluster Searching and Amberscope, you can rapidly obtain a second opinion that can find relevant patents missed by other tools.

To help users understand just how simple this process can be, Ambercite has produced a series of simple 'how-to' videos, including videos covering

  • What is Cluster Searching?
  • How do a do a Patentability search using Cluster Searching
  • How to quickly expand a patent examination search
  • An invalidation search for America's most litigated patens - finding 'unknown' prior art
  • How to find new prior art for a recently granted EP patent
  • Introduction to AmberScope

These video are all found on the page found here.

Come and discover why we believe that Ambercite should be in every patent searcher's toolkit.
