What is Family Cluster Searching?
Cluster Searching is built on the analytic principles of AmberScope, only our platform does the work for you - and you can start with one or a group of patents.
- Simply input a starting list of known patents. You can use from 1 up to 100 starting patents in a single query.
- Avoid the need to spend valuable time trying to guess the best keywords or class codes, only to find that despite your best efforts that you have still missed important keywords or codes.
- Queries can be date filtered to before or after a nominated date
- In less than a second you will see a ranked list of highly similar patents, arranged in families, that may be missed by conventional keyword, patent code or citation searching.
- These will include both known and unknown citations ('unknown' citations are new results missed by patent offices and applicants).
- Patent numbers are hyperlinked to further details to enable rapid review.
- Results can be copied, sorted, filtered, manually reordered, deleted, edited, or downloaded into Excel.
- Licensing Potential values are listed for all 'licensing searches' (for patents filed after a nominated date), and can be used to rank the patents and companies you find.
- Because this is so fast, you can quickly vary or add to your list of starting patents.
- Gain new insights not available elsewhere. Ideal as a second opinion to your existing search processes.
- Save hours of searching and thousands of dollars by simply reviewing what may be highly relevant patents in our suggested ranking order - and thereby avoid the need to review what can be hundreds or thousands of irrelevant patents collected using more traditional and less patent searching methods.
- Avoid the need for outsourcing of patent searching.
- 100% confidential. Only you will see your work. Ambercite will not in any way save either your query, or the results.
Family Cluster Searching is available via:
- Online access via a corporate subscription
- An API to integrate with your own platform.
- "Smart-data", the provision of bulk similarity and patent quality data for those who want a fully closed analytics system.
Family Cluster Searching is attracting the attention of some of the world's leading patent offices and companies, including organisations looking to boost their own sophisticated analysis systems.
