A non-disclosure agreement will do you well. The more specific you are in the agreement, the stronger the actual agreement will be. But you really don't need anything else except an agreement in place before you disclose the information you want to be kept confidential.

You can draft a form up like this yourself (here is a link to a site that has a generic form), but it would be wise to seek the help of an attorney in doing this. Bear in mind when you get a form off of the internet, it is not state specific, although most generic forms would protect your rights for a non-disclosure agreement.

Another thing to consider: the invention agent probably has a standard form that he/she uses. Call them up and see if they have one and can either mail it to you or send it to you.

I hope this information helps. Good luck to you!
