“The evidence presented to rebut a prima facie case of obviousness must be commensurate in scope with the claims to which it pertains.” In re Dill, 604 F.2d 1356, 1361, 202 USPQ 805, 808 (CCPA 1979). “It is well established that the objective evidence of nonobviousness must be commensurate in scope with the claims.” In re Lindner, 457 F.2d 506, 508 (CCPA 1972).

“Commensurate in scope” means that the evidence provides a reasonable basis for concluding that the untested embodiments encompassed by the claims would behave in the same manner as the tested embodiment(s). See Lindner, 457 F.2d at 508 (“Here, only one mixture of ingredients was tested . . . . The claims, however, are much broader in scope, . . . and we have to agree with the Patent Office that there is no ‘adequate basis for reasonably concluding that the great number and variety of compositions included by the claims would behave in the same manner as the [single] tested composition.’” (bracketed material in original)).
