CLAIMS® Direct empowers technology professionals and analysts in many industries

From drug development to investment banking, using a high-quality patent database can lead to new discoveries. Eighty percent of the information found in patents isn't available from any other source1. And if it is published elsewhere, there is typically a lag of several months.
