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:

An 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 the search.
An 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 interpretation.
A showing of support for each claim limitation in the specification and any parent application, including any means-plus-function limitations.
An identification of any cited references that may be disqualified as prior art under 35 U.S.C. 103(c).




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.
