Though understanding the claim language may be aided by the explanations contained in the written description, it is important not to import into a claim limitations that are not a part of the claim. For example, a particular embodiment appearing in the written description may not be read into a claim when the claim language is broader than the embodiment.

SuperGuide Corp. v. DirecTV Enters, Inc., 358 F.3d 870, 875 (Fed. Cir. 2004) (citing Electro Med. Sys. S.A. v. Cooper Life Sci., Inc., 34 F.3d 1048, 1054 (Fed. Cir. 1994)). Further, “although the specification often describes very specific embodiments of the invention,” Phillips v. AWH Corp., 415 F.3d 1303, 1323 (Fed. Cir. 2005), our reviewing court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, “ha[s] repeatedly warned against confining the claims to those embodiments." Id.
