see also Ans. 14 (citing In re Aller, 220 F.2d 454 (CCPA 1955))...

As discussed above, the Examiner supports the obviousness rejection by citing to case law concerning the optimization of ranges, e.g., In re Aller. Aller established two conditions for a conclusion of obviousness: 1) the general conditions of the claim must be disclosed in the prior art and 2) discovery of the optimum or workable range must be a matter of routine experimentation for a person of ordinary skill in the art. Aller, 220 F.2d at 456 (citations omitted). Aller does not apply in this case at least because the general conditions of the claim were not disclosed in the prior art.

Aller, In re, 220 F.2d 454, 105 USPQ 233 (CCPA 1955) 2144.05
