A patent protects a practical solution to a technical problem

A patent can only be granted for an invention.

In order for an invention to lead to a patent it must constitute a practical solution to a problem where the solution is of a technical nature or effect and is reproducible.

Processes, products and devices can be patented, for example blood analyses, computer technology and zip fasteners:
