We have considered applicant’s remaining arguments and find none that warrant reversal of the Examiner’s rejection based on Hansen, Søe and the European Patent Application. Cf. Loughlin v. Ling, 103 USPQ2d 1413 (Fed. Cir. 2012).

We are mindful that the question of written description support should not be confused with the question of what would have been obvious to the artisan. Whether one skilled in the art would find the instantly claimed invention obvious in view of the disclosure is not an issue in the “written description” inquiry. In re Barker, 559 F.2d 588, 593 (CCPA 1977). A description which renders obvious the invention for which the benefit of an earlier date is sought is not sufficient. Lockwood v. American Airlines, Inc., 107 F.3d 1565, 1572 (Fed. Cir. 1997).
