See In re Steele, 305 F.2d 859, 862–63 (CCPA 1962) (holding that the Board erred in affirming an obviousness rejection of indefinite claims because the rejection was based on speculative assumptions as to the meaning of the claims) ... 

Steele, In re, 305 F.2d 859, 134 USPQ 292 (CCPA 1959) 2143.03 2173.06

We find the reasoning in In re Steele to be applicable to the written description rejection because reaching a decision as to whether the claims have adequate written description support requires that we first understand the metes and bounds of the claims.  Cf. In re Moore, 439 F.2d 1232, 1235 (CCPA 1971) (One is not in a position to determine whether a claim is enabled under the first paragraph of 35 U.S.C. § 112 until the metes and bounds of that claim are determined under the second paragraph of this section of the statute.). 

Moore, In re, 439 F.2d 1232, 169 USPQ 236 (CCPA 1971) 1504.04 2161.01 2164.08 2172

Thus, the test for determining the question of indefiniteness may be formulated as whether the claims “set out and circumscribe a particular area with a reasonable degree of precision and particularity.”  In re Moore, 439 F.2d 1232, 1235 (CCPA 1971).

The relevant inquiry under 35 U.S.C. 112(2), in the examination context "is to determine whether the claims do, in fact, set out and circumscribe a particular area with a reasonable degree of precision and particularity." In re Moore, 439 F.2d 1232, 1235 (CCPA 1971) (emphasis added).  "[T]he definiteness of the language employed must be analyzed - not in a vacuum, but always in light of the teachings of the prior art and of the particular application disclosure as it would be interpreted by one possessing the ordinary level of skill in the pretinent art." Id.

Moore, In re, 439 F.2d 1232, 169 USPQ 236 (CCPA 1971) 1504.04 2161.01 2164.08 2172

The written description requirement “serves a teaching function, as a "quid pro quo" in which the public is given "meaningful disclosure in exchange for being excluded from practicing the invention for a limited period of time."” Univ. of Rochester v. G.D. Searle & Co., 358 F.3d 916, 922 (Fed. Cir. 2004). In this case, the Specification does not provide a meaningful disclosure of the invention to the public in return for the grant of a patent, failing to satisfy the basic quid pro quo underlying the patent system.
