New: FIZ Karlsruhe implements Chinese full-text patent file CNFULL on STN / full-texts of Chinese patent applications, granted patents and utility models available in machine-translated English / unique numeric property search feature enables users to search for chemical and physical properties

Karlsruhe, April 2012 – With China having grown into one of the world’s major patenting countries, it becomes extremely important for all companies involved in R&D to keep an eye on the developments in Asia and at the same time to protect their products and inventions in this region accordingly. The new full-text patent file CNFULL offered by FIZ Karlsruhe, the European Service Center of STN International, enables researchers and patent specialists to broaden their complex patent searches to Chinese patent full-texts in order to determine patentability, state of the art, infringement, and licensing possibilities.

“With CNFULL we offer our customers a valuable resource of patent information from one of the world’s most dynamic economic areas,” says Rainer Stuike-Prill, Vice President Marketing & Sales at FIZ Karlsruhe. “The excellent search, retrieval and analysis tools of STN allow for precise searching and retrieval of business-critical information. The new database provides our customers with an overall picture of the Asian patent landscape, thus helping them to secure their competitive advantage.”

At present, the file comprises over 4.5 million records and more than 3.8 million images from 1985 onwards. More than 10,000 new documents are added to the file each week. Each database record contains all documents published for one application. Online thesauri for the International Patent Classification (/IPC) and the European Patent Classification (/EPC) are searchable. Abstracts are initially machine translated and replaced three months later by human translated text; descriptions and claims are machine translated.

The unique Numeric Property Search feature, developed by FIZ Karlsruhe and already used in other full-text patent files on STN, is also available in CNFULL. It enables users to search the numeric values of over 30 physical and chemical properties in almost 400 unit variants within the full text of all documents and thus significantly enhances the search precision in many cases. Searchable properties and their respective base units comprise for example /SAR (Surface Area, m²), /CMOL (Molar Concentration, mol/L), /DEN (Mass Density, kg/m³), or /VOL (Volume, m³).

CNFULL is a valuable addition to STN’s wide range of full-text patent databases from all over the world. It shows once more that FIZ Karlsruhe provides excellent services to science and business, as confirmed recently by an international auditing group. 35 years after its foundation, FIZ Karlsruhe is dedicated to its motto “Advancing Science”, against which its products and services are measured.
