Univentio is a Netherlands-based provider of global patent information that was founded in 1952 to provide patent document delivery services.[1] The company then began to collect and license patent data, and it was acquired by LexisNexis in 2005.[1] At the time it was acquired by LexisNexis, Univentio offered "over 100 patent authorities in bibliographic form, 20 authorities in full text, and 20 authorities with machine translations that allow English language searching across the entire full text database."[2]

According to a 2007 article from Information Today, Univentio produced a patent search system called PatentWarehouse, and after joining with LexisNexis, the company redeveloped the system into the TotalPatent search platform.[1]
