Addressing USPTO Office Action


A client received an office action  from the USPTO indicating important claims for their patent were  rejected because they were obvious and thus lacked novelty.

BioPhia Role:

BioPhia was engaged to review the situation and provide an expert opinion for the office action.


A team was assembled familiar with  the technical area and with experience in patents and USPTO office  actions.  Review of the literature pertinent to the patent claims and a  letter outlining the novelty of the claims was completed based on prior  art and standard approaches in the field of interest.


The information and letter were used by the client to respond to the USPTO.
