While the Examiner is encouraged to apply the broadest reasonable interpretation, we find the Examiner’s interpretation unreasonable in this instance. That is, there is no reason to interpret part of the diameter of Burt’s syringe between the “parallel spaced apart flange rings 38 and 39 for use as stabilizers” (FF 2) as a “locating portion” simply in order to permit the larger end of Burt’s syringe to become the “flange.” See In re Cortright, 165 F.3d 1353, 1358 (Fed. Cir. 1999) (“Although the PTO must give claims their broadest reasonable interpretation, this interpretation must be consistent with the one that those skilled in the art would reach.”)

Cortright, In re, 165 F.3d 1353, 49 USPQ2d 1464 (Fed. Cir. 1999) 2111 2164.04
