Powering life sciences innovation

Patents are vital to the pharmaceutical industry – from identifying new market opportunities and drug discovery, to protecting and enforcing rights. Our solutions deliver the intelligence and technical resources that pharma and biotech companies need to innovate with confidence.

  • Monitor the life sciences patent landscape for threats and opportunities
  • Identify and assess potential patent infringements
  • Easily understand the relevance of sequences and chemical compounds within patent intelligence
Derwent’s patent analytics services are extremely valuable for early stage companies. Investors are not going to write a check if we cannot give them comfort that we have something proprietary and there isn’t a patent out there that is going to invalidate our strategy. Derwent provides a very powerful way to check that box with confidence.
