However, we find the portions of the Specification (id.) cited by Appellants (App. Br. 2) do not identify a description of "a reason to exclude the relevant limitation." Santarus, Inc. v. Par Pharm., Inc., 694 F.3d 1344, 1351 (Fed. Cir. 2012) ("Negative claim limitations are adequately supported when the specification describes a reason to exclude the relevant limitation. Such written description support need not rise to the level of disclaimer. In fact, it is possible for the patentee to support both the inclusion and exclusion of the same material."). See also Manual of Patent Examination Procedure (MPEP) 2173.05(i) (9th Ed., Mar. 2014) ("Any negative limitation or exclusionary proviso must have basis in the original disclosure. The mere absence of a positive recitation is not basis for an exclusion").
