Under the proper legal standard, a reference will teach away when it suggests that the developments flowing from its disclosures are unlikely to produce the objective of the applicant’s invention. ... A statement that a particular combination is not a preferred embodiment does not teach away absent clear discouragement of that combination. . . .

Because of the contradictory, ambiguous language in paragraph 12 of  Appellants’ Specification, we find no clear and unequivocal disclaimer. As explained by our reviewing court, even under the narrower Phillips standard of claim construction applied in infringement proceedings:

Disavowal can be effectuated by language in the specification or the prosecution history. See Phillips, 415 F.3d at 1316-17. In either case, the standard for disavowal is exacting, requiring clear and unequivocal evidence that the claimed invention includes or does not include a particular feature. See Openwave Sys., Inc. v. Apple Inc., 808 F.3d 509, 513-14 (Fed. Cir. 2015); Omega Eng’g., Inc. v. Raytek Corp., 334 F.3d 1314, 1323-26 (Fed. Cir. 2003). Ambiguous language cannot support disavowal. Omega, 334 F.3d at 1324; see also Schindler Elevator Corp. v. Otis Elevator Co., 593 F.3d 1275, 1285 (Fed. Cir. 2010).

Poly-America, L.P. v. API Industries, Inc., 839 F.3d 1131, 1136 (Fed. Cir. 2016).

What a reference teaches a person of ordinary skill is not "limited to what a reference specifically 'talks about' or what is specifically 'mentioned' or 'written' in the reference." Syntex (U.S.A.) LLC v. Apotex, Inc., 407 F.3d 1371, 1380 (Fed. Cir. 2005). In short, one skilled in the art is able to read a reference for all that it teaches and not limit a reference to its explicit text or a preferred embodiment. See Beckman Instruments, Inc. v. LKB  AB, 892 F.2d 1547, 1551 (Fed. Cir. 1989); see also In re Chapman, 357 F.2d 418, 424 (CCPA 1966) ("A reference can be used for all it realistically teaches, and is not limited to the disclosures in its specific illustrative examples.").
