Cir. 2007) (citing Norian Corp. v. Stryker Corp., 363 F.3d 1321, 1331 (Fed. Cir. 2004) (“‘consisting of’ is a term of patent convention meaning that the claimed invention contains only what is expressly set forth in the claim . . . [however] it does not limit aspects unrelated to the invention”); In re Gray, 53 F.2d 520 (CCPA 1931) (the use of the claim term “consists” is limited to the claim’s enumerated alloy metals without other elements, unlike the term “comprising” which permits the inclusion of other metals than those “claimed”).
