Thus, the final "wherein" clause is non-limiting — it describes a source of the mineral ions for the production of the claimed composition, rather than imparting any actual or apparently meaningful structural limitation to the claims themselves. MPEP   2110.04; see generally Griffin v. Berlina, 285 F.3d 1029, 1034 (Fed. Cir. 2002) (affirming interpretation that a wherein clause was limiting because it provided "meaning and purpose to the manipulative steps" of the claim).

Griffin v. Bertina, 283 F.3d 1029, 62 USPQ2d 1431 (Fed. Cir. 2002) 2103 2111.04
