Further, we note that the product washed constitutes the material on which the flume washer performs work and, thus, does not confer a patentable limitation on the claimed flume washer. See, e.g., In re Otto, 312
F.2d 937, 939-40 (CCPA 1963); In re Rishoi, 197 F.2d 342, 344-45 (CCPA 1952) (“[T]here is no patentable combination between a device and the material upon which it works.”); In re Young, 75 F.2d 996 (CCPA 1935); In re Smith, 36 F.2d 302, 303 (CCPA 1929) (“It might be argued that the invention here consists in a combination of extra length carbons with the old machine, and that such a combination is patentable. It will be borne in mind that it has been long established that a person may not patent a combination of device and material upon which the device works, nor limit other persons from the use of similar material by claiming a device patent.”).

However, Congress has determined that

Sec. 135. Interferences
(b)
(1) A claim which is the same as, or for the same or substantially the same subject matter as, a claim of an issued patent may not be made in any application unless such a claim is made prior to one year from the date on which the patent was granted.
