簡介

微流體是一個顯著成長的領域,在各種領域都得到成功的應用

微流體技術出現於1980年代初期,被使用於噴墨機的噴頭,DNA晶片,晶片實驗室技術,即時醫療設備等。它是工程,物理,化學,生物化學,奈米科技,生物科技交叉的學科。這個廣泛的技術領域當中,跟微流體相關的專利已超過2萬個問世,每個月有超過150個專利出現。HP,BOSCH,ABBOTT,ROCHE等許多,在這個領域的知識財產權活動相當積極,每個月都有新創公司提出新的專利申請。此外,一些市場預測顯示未來數十年將有強勁增長。全球對微流體技術的需求都存在,北美(40%以上)是最大市場,其次是歐洲(30%以上),和亞太地區(20%以上)。

因此,在急速成長的微流體市場中,為了預測變化,儘早掌握新參與企業及商機,降低風險,下策略性的判斷,必須追蹤專利。

此服務讓您可以使用每月更新的Excel檔案,每季分析報告,並且能夠與分析師直接互動。在每月更新的Excel檔案中,包括新專利,專利過期/放棄,轉讓專利(重新轉讓,授權),專利訴訟/提出異議。專利領域分為即時檢測,細胞分選,藥物釋放,IC冷卻,噴墨等應用領域。這個Excel專利數據庫讓您可以進行搜索,包括優先權日期,專利受讓人,權利要求,專利法律地位,技術領域。

每季報告中,提供過去3個月的智慧財產權趨勢,並且聚焦於主要知識財產廠商及主要專利技術。此外,藉由直接聯繫Knowmade的分析師,可以提供您特定的專利技術以及企業的知識財產組合等相關問題跟討論。

Microfluidic is a well-established growing market with successful applications in several industrial areas

Microfluidics emerged in the beginning of the 1980s and is used for example in the development of inkjet printheads, DNA chips, lab-on-a-chip technology, or point-of-care devices. It is a multidisciplinary field at the intersection of engineering, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, nanotechnology, and biotechnology. In this broad technical area, more than 20,000 patent families related to microfluidics have been published worldwide, and over 150 new patent families are published each month. A lot of large companies, such as HP, BOSCH, ABBOTT or ROCHE, are very active in terms of IP activity in this field, and every month new startups file new patent applications. Moreover, several market predictions indicate a robust growth for the next coming decades. A demand for microfluidic technology exists worldwide with North America (> 40%) being the largest market followed by Europe (> 30%) and Asia Pacific (~20%).

Therefore, in such a fast-growing and dynamic microfluidic market, it is essential to track patents in order to anticipate changes, quickly detect new entrants and business opportunities, mitigate risks, and make strategic decisions.

The microfluidic devices patent monitoring service allows you to take advantage of a monthly updated Excel file and benefit from both quarterly analysis reports and direct interaction with our analysts. The monthly Excel files include new patents, patents expired/abandoned, patent transfers (re-assignment, licensing) and patent litigation/opposition. The patents are categorized by application segments such as PoC, cell sorting, drug delivery, IC cooling, inkjet etc. This useful Excel patent database allows for multi-criteria searches including priority date, patent assignees, claims, legal status of patents and technology segments. The quarterly reports provide the IP trends over the three last months, with a close look to key IP players and key patented technologies. The direct access to our analysts offers you Q&A session and open discussion on specific patented technologies or company IP portfolios.

Benefits of the patent monitoring service

Keep a watch on your competitors' IP activities and their future intentions.

With the help of the patent monitoring service, you will be aware of your competitors' current patenting activities, their IP dynamics, patent transfers including acquisitions and licenses, patent litigation, technology development and R&D strategies. You will also be able to early detect new entrants in your business area.

Keep track of the latest technology developments and be ahead of technology trends.

By keeping note of any recent patent filings, you can track the newest innovations in the field. You will get details on claimed inventions and you can follow technology developments. New technical solutions could inspire and improve your R&D activity.

Prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.

You will obtain information on patent applications filed even before exclusive rights have been granted and you can react in time to prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.

React in time to infringements and mitigate legal risks.

Monitoring newly-issued patents allows you to regularly assess your freedom-to-operate, ensuring your products or processes are not covered patents and thus they can be manufactured, sold or used safely without infringing valid IP rights owned by others.

Take advantage of free technologies and decrease R&D project risks.

By tracking both expired patents and abandoned patents, you will be able to identify inventions entering the public domain that you can use safely for your development.

Understand the current IP trends and IP strategy of competitors

On a quarterly basis, the report will provide the IP trends over the three last months, with a close look to key IP players and key patented technologies. Main patent applicants and their inventions, blocking patents, promising patents and key patents newly expired or abandoned will be highlighted.

Access to the IP analyst

Take advantage of direct interaction with our analysts by phone call and/or email and get specific input for specific patented technologies and company IP portfolios through Q&A session and open discussion (100h a year).
