For questions of enablement, the Federal Circuit has held that “the specification of a patent must teach those skilled in the art how to make and use the full scope of the claimed invention without ‘undue experimentation’.” In re Wright, 999 F.2d 1557, 1561 (Fed. Cir. 1993) (emphasis added). Regarding the scope of enablement for purely functional claims, the Board has held that

[W]hen the limitation encompasses any and all structures or acts for performing a recited function, including those which were not what the applicant had invented, the disclosure fails to provide a scope of enablement commensurate with the scope of the claim and the claim would violate the prohibition of [Halliburton Oil Well Cementing Co. v. Walker, 329 U.S. 1 (1946)].

Ex parte Miyazaki, 89 USPQ2d 1207, 1217 (BPAI 2008) (precedential).
