“To anticipate a claim, a prior art reference must disclose every limitation of the claimed invention, either explicitly or inherently.” In re Schreiber, 128 F.3d 1473, 1477 (Fed. Cir. 1997). “[A]bsence from the reference of any claimed element negates anticipation.” Kloster Speedsteel AB v. Crucible, Inc., 793 F.2d 1565, 1571 (Fed. Cir. 1986). Because the Examiner’s rejection is based on anticipation under 35 U.S.C. § 102—and not obviousness under 35 U.S.C. § 103—the Examiner may only use extrinsic evidence for the limited purpose of explaining what is inherent in the MPI-2 reference. See, e.g., In re Baxter Travenol Labs., 952 F.2d 388, 390 (Fed. Cir. 1991) (“Extrinsic evidence may be considered when it is used to explain, but not to expand, the meaning of a reference [relied upon to show anticipation].”) (emphasis added). ...

Where a “reference is silent about the asserted inherent characteristic, such gap in the reference may be filled with recourse to extrinsic evidence,” but “such evidence must make clear that the missing descriptive matter is necessarily present in the thing described in the reference, and that it would be so recognized by persons of ordinary skill . . . .” Continental Can Co. USA, Inc. v. Monsanto Co., 948 F.2d 1264, 1268 (Fed. Cir. 1991) (citations omitted, emphasis added).

“Inherency, however, may not be established by probabilities or possibilities. The mere fact that a certain thing may result from a given set of circumstances is not sufficient.” Therasense, Inc. v. Becton, Dickinson & Co., 593 F.3d 1325, 1332 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (citing Cont'l Can Co. USA, Inc. v. Monsanto Co., 948 F.2d 1264, 1269 (Fed. Cir. 1991)).
