Besides taking care of all formal documents needed for filing, Metrixion also assists in the preparation of translations of patent application in the relevant languages. Since Metrixion is an European company we also handle the validation (including translations) of granted European patents in the different European countries.

PCT National Phase Filing
One of Metrixion’s most valued services is our PCT National Phase filing service. Experienced users of the patent system know that the tasks associated with PCT National Phase entry can be laborious. In addition it may be complex to keep an overview on the specific requirements that apply for different countries. Metrixion can take away the National Phase entry burden for you. Use us as a single filing stop and rely on us to do the correspondence with the different local agents and translation service providers.
Validation of European Patents
Under the European Patent Convention (EPC), the grant of a European Patent is not the final stage, but more an intermediary point, as national validation formalities are required to effectuate the granted rights in those EPC contracting states where a patentee wishes to maintain its rights. Via our network of experienced agents, Metrixion offers excellent services for these post-grant formalities. With a single stop at Metrixion, you will be able to validate your granted rights in all the EPC contracting states where you require your rights to be maintained. Rely on us to do the correspondence with the various national agents and translation service providers.
