Interesting publications of the quarter

The Indian patent application (201621007080) relates to the unique food preservation method involving chitosan nanoparticles. Given that the fresh salads are more prone to the growth of pathogenic microbes; this patent claims to establish a chitosan biopolymer derived from chitin, second only to cellulose, the most abundant polysaccharide, to be an efficient preservative when used alone or in a solution of weak acids.

This patent application 3228/MUM/2014 describes various methods of detecting complex speech related to stress. Using various algorithms such as Hanning Window Technique, up to 86% efficiency of stress-based speech recognition was obtained.

Molecular Connections' Approach
  • Subject experts at Molecular Connections devised the keyword based search strategy along with additional searches like assignee, citation and semantic searches for patent and scientific literature searches. These searches were performed on various free and commercial databases to shortlist relevant patents and non-patent literature in the technology domain.

  • IP Landscape analysis was carried out to identify the patterns and trends of patenting activities based on the key commercial/institutional innovators, their collaborations, the geography of the origin of their innovations (priority countries/offices of first filing), the geographical extent of protection they seek (offices of second filing), the patent activity over time, and patent distribution by category of technology.

  • Various technology trends like innovation, patent distribution among key players, research institutes/universities, and countries were derived. Along with these, few innovative and prospective technologies which have the potential to be game changers for business over the next decade were also provided.
Outcome Molecular Connections presented technology insights along with key global players and leaders in the domain. The key players were probed further to find out patenting activities in the technology area and their geographical presence. The list of KoLs, potential institutes/universities were also provided.
This edifying report by Molecular Connections was shortlisted by WIPO for highlighting innovative technologies in Self – Diagnostic Medical Devices, the current key players vs. opportunities untapped.
