Mogambo Solutions offers pre-examination searches that comply with the recently
enacted USPTO procedures for Accelerated Examinations.
The new procedures, which became effective on
August 26, 2006 allows the USPTO to advance an
application out of turn for examination if the
applicant files a grantable petition to make special
under the accelerated examination program. Under
the new rules, an applicant will be required to
provide additional information with the petition
for accelerated examination, and comply with revised
procedures throughout the examination process.
The goal of this change is to achieve a final
decision by the examiner within 12 months from
the filing date of the application. It is important
to note, however, that the 12 month period is
simply a target, and failure by the USPTO to meet
the target is neither petitionable nor appealable.
Mogambo Solutions provides a comprehensive Accelerated
Examination Search which complies with the following
requirements set forth by the USPTO:
identification of the field of search by US
class and subclass, as well as International
class. For database searches, the search logic
or chemical structure or sequence used as
a query, the name of the file or files searches,
the database service used, and the date of
identification of where each claim limitation
in the patent application is found in the
cited prior art references.
A detailed explanation of how each claim is
patentable over the reference using relevancy
showing of support for each claim limitation
in the specification and any parent application,
including any means-plus-function limitations.
identification of any cited references that
may be disqualified as prior art under 35
Our Accelerated Examination Search includes a
complete search of US Patents and Applications,
Foreign Patents, and Non-Patent Literature from
a variety of technical journals and databases.
The price for these reports is determined by the
number of claims in the patent application, as
each claim, independent and dependent, must be
analyzed per the USPTO guidelines set forth above.

procedure can be found by visiting the USPTO website.
