Under NPASF, the following services are provided:

 Prior Art Search

Under the Prior Art Search facility, one can unearth prior inventions that bear close resemblance to any patent or non-patent literature. Under this facility search is conducted on patent literature, product literature, research journals and databases. One can ask for search and analysis report for proposed idea/query with respect to their novelty and inventiveness. This helps in filing of patent application or initiating new research proposals.

In addition to Prior Art Search, NPASF also provides help in Patent Drafting. Professionals help in the preparation of patent drafts enabling complete description of the embodiment of a process, machine, matter as per technical requirements, viz., title, cross references, background, summary, description (both brief and detailed), claims, abstract, and sequence listing.
