Sagacious IP’s New Application Scouting service identifies new application areas for the technologies owned by corporations and research institutes. Application Scouting strengthens and boosts innovation, R&D strategy, patent portfolios and enables you to create market expansion strategies for your existing technology portfolio. With Application Scouting, you can build expansion or licensing strategies that exponentially increase ROI per innovation.
Our team of technology experts can create a simple summary of the patent(s) identified during portfolio analysis/IP Audit, during IP/technology due diligence, or any other customised prior-art search. These summaries not only help inventors to understand inventions better but are a proven approach to smoothen collaboration within teams.
Sagacious IP’s multifaceted Technology Scouting service is regarded as a method of technology forecasting or in a broader context – an element of corporate foresight. With the proliferation of technologies and the growing complexity of products and services, it no longer seems possible for any company, as large as it may be, to innovate alone. Sagacious IP provides technology scouting and sourcing support services to help them achieve their goals.
Sagacious IP’s Custom Patent Search model is designed for customers who have a specific set of parameters or guidelines for conducting searches instead of a standard parameter. Our researchers use these custom guidelines to apply cohesive, well-considered search strategies to efficiently search through the most relevant databases and source libraries and finally retrieve for the customer the most relevant information.
Sagacious IP’s Knock Out Validity Search is designed to quickly check patent and non-patent documents that may challenge the validity of the claims of a subject patent to discover prior art that the patent examiner may have overlooked during examination, thereby making it an invaluable tool when it comes to litigation and licensing related negotiations.
Sagacious IP’s Markush Structure Search is an extension of Chemical Structure Search and Analysis. This search, based on Markush structures, initiates as a chemical structure search and involves a comprehensive strategy that enables you to identify documents that have a broad coverage for functional moieties, enabling you to streamline R&D efforts, influence on-going patent litigation, track competition and strengthen your intellectual property rights.
Searching for patents only in English limits the search results and you end up missing several relevant patents.

Sagacious IP’s Non-Patent Search retrieves published information that is crucial for any stage of a product lifecycle. Non-patent literature (NPL) are articles published in scientific journals, public conference disclosures, research announcements as well as public disclosure platforms such as social media, datasheets, magazines, etc. Sagacious IP is well equipped to provide a thorough overview of existing prior arts to save time, maximise quality and scope of your patents.
Sagacious IP’s in-depth Biological Sequence Search is designed to unearth even the most hard-to-find sequences hidden deep within a wide array of patent and non-patent literature, making it ideal for Fortune 500s and world-renowned research labs developing antibodies, primers and therapies including peptides/nucleic acids.
Sagacious IP’s hyper-targeted Chemical Structure Search is a highly specialized search used to identify chemical structures mentioned in patent and non-patent publications. Complete chemical structures, and variations in functional moieties and chains enable you to draw and identify the most relevant references for inventions, particularly in chemistry, biochemistry and pharmaceuticals, thereby boosting your R&D efforts, influencing ongoing patent litigation, tracking competition, and strengthening your intellectual property rights.
Sagacious IP’s Design Patent Search service focuses on the aesthetic part of an invention and enables you to identify potential infringements or prior arts. It identifies relevant design classifications, term sets and uses them to develop a search strategy that comprehensively covers all the designs in a pre-defined technological domain.
Sagacious IP’s Patent Landscape Search enables customers to understand how a technology or industry is evolving by giving an overview and analysis of patent information. Customers leverage Sagacious IP’s Patent Landscapes to identify patents the competition is filing, their patenting strategy, new opportunities/threats in the domain, M&A possibilities, technology white spaces AND tailor their business and R&D investments accordingly.
Whether you need to assess potential infringement prior to a product launch, or to plan out your next phase of technical development – Sagacious IP’s Freedom To Operate (FTO) searches are designed to help you identify potential roadblocks that may need to be licensed or invalidated; as well as guide product design decisions and/or uncover design around technologies.
Sagacious IP’s award-winning Patent Invalidation/Invalidity Search service enables you to identify patent and non-patent documents that may impact the validity of the claims of a patent. Our unique methodology not only helps you quickly identify relevant prior arts but also delivers the information you seek, structured as per your unique legal and technical requirements, enabling you to make quick IP decisions.
