Questel*Orbit's Plus & PlusPat

Questel * Orbit announces:

* The PlusPat patent database service now contains more than 40 million patents from 69 worldwide patenting authorities. Questel * Orbit recently added 6.5 million additional front-page images for EPO, WIPO, France, and Japan patents and publications. New display formats offer, in a single record, comprehensive family information, the representative English-language abstract, and the corresponding legal status information. The LEGAL, FULLTEXT, and FULLCLMS display options are also now available.

* PLUS, an online search service feature, lets users create "super records" by custom-building patent records with blocks of patent data from any of Questel * Orbit's worldwide collection of patent files. From a single Questel * Orbit database, users combine any field or display format found in other databases into a "super record." Users enter a display command and then Questel * Orbit retrieves the requested fields or formats, and integrates them in a continuous display.
