We agree with Appellants that the Examiner has failed to set forth a prima facie case of obviousness.

We recognize that during prosecution before the Office, claims are to be given their broadest reasonable interpretation consistent with the Specification as it would be interpreted by one of ordinary skill in the art. In re American Academy Of Science Tech Center, 367 F.3d 1359, 1364 (Fed. Cir. 2004). Claim language, however, “should not [be] treated as meaningless.” Bicon, Inc. v. Straumann Co., 441 F.3d 945, 951 (Fed. Cir. 2006). Moreover, “the claims themselves provide substantial guidance as to the meaning of particular claim terms.” Philips v. AWH Corp., 415 F.3d 1303, 1314 (Fed. Cir. 2005) (en banc).

American Academy of Science Tech. Center, In re, 367 F.3d 1359, 70 USPQ2d 1827 (Fed. Cir. 2004) . . . . . 2111, 2111.01

Phillips v. AWH Corp., 415 F.3d 1303, 75 USPQ2d 1321 (Fed. Cir. 2005) . 2111, 2111.01, 2143.01, 2258
