None of the cited examples from the Specification purports to define the claim term “form in FIG. 5,” or otherwise limit the scope of the claims on appeal.  Accordingly, we decline to read values from preferred embodiments into those claims.  See Bayer AG v. Biovail Corp., 279 F.3d 1340, 1348 (Fed. Cir. 2002) (“a court may not read into a claim a limitation from a preferred embodiment, if that limitation is not present in the claim itself.”).
