The mere fact that the term “about” permits some tolerance does not, in and of itself, support a rejection under 35 U.S.C. § 112, ¶ 2. In this case, the Examiner failed to explain why one skilled in the relevant art would not have been able to ascertain the scope of the claim in view of the recited term “about.” Amgen, Inc. v. Chugai Pharm. Co., Ltd, 927 F.2d 1200, 1218 (Fed. Cir. 1991) (holding that a specific activity of “at least about 160,000” was indefinite where the scope of the limitation was in doubt, “especially when . . . there is close prior art,” but cautioning that the holding “should not be understood as ruling out any and all uses of this term in patent claims”).
