Patent Lens

The Patent Lens is an online patent search service, by CAMBIA, an independent, international non-profit organisation. It allows free searching of over 8 million documents, including United States patents and applications, Australian patents and applications, European patents and PCT applications (world-wide applications). Searching can be done using many different variables, such as full text, title, abstract, inventor, assignee, patent number, application number etc. There are also links to pdfs of the patent/application, to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), to the INPADOC patent status and patent family information service and to a full-text copy of the patent or application in question.

In addition to the patent search engine, the Patent Lens has a number of “technology landscapes” (large detailed documents about the patenting of key technologies). To date landscapes are available for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of plants, Promoters Used to Regulate Gene Expression, Antibiotic Resistance Genes and their Uses in Plant Genetic Transformation, Resistance to Phosphinothricin, Positive Selection, Human Genome Patenting, Human Telomerase Gene, Molecular Markers Outside Gene Sequences and Bioindicators. Landscapes soon to be released will include Patenting of the Rice Genome and Patenting of the Influenza Genome.
