We agree with Appellant. As the Examiner found, Fine describes at least two genera of binding units that comprise both positively and negatively charged species. See Final Act. 6 (citing Fine ¶ 14). Thus, claim 1 is directed to subgenera while Fine contains a generic disclosure. In general, disclosure of a genus is not sufficient to anticipate a claim to a member or members of the genus. See, e.g., In re Schaumann, 572 F.2d 312, 316 (CCPA 1978); In re Petering, 301 F.2d 676, 681 (CCPA 1962). Although there are exceptions to this general rule, application of these exceptions requires factual determinations that are not in the record before us.

The Examiner, therefore, erred by finding that Fine’s description of binding units comprising either fluorescent dyes or toxins anticipates claims directed to the sub-genera of positively-charged fluorescent dyes or positively-charged toxins.

It is well established that specific examples of the claimed subject matter are not necessary to establish anticipation. Rather, to anticipate, one skilled in the art must be able to “at once envisage” the claimed subject matter in the prior art disclosure.  In re Petering, 301 F.2d 676, 681 (CCPA 1962) (claimed chemical compound described by prior art reference because one skilled in the art would “at once envisage” each member of a limited class of chemical structures).

Cf. In re Schaumann, 572 F.2d 312, 317 (CCPA 1978) (In order to anticipate, a reference must identify something falling within the claimed subject matter with sufficient specificity to constitute a description thereof within the purview of § 102.). It is well established that specific examples of the claimed subject matter are not necessary to establish anticipation. Rather, to anticipate, one skilled in the art must be able to “at once envisage” the claimed subject matter in the prior art disclosure. In re Petering, 301 F.2d 676, 681 (CCPA 1962).

We do not agree with the Examiner’s reasoning. First, although a reference can anticipate without a specific example directed to the claimed invention, that exception to the general rule of anticipation is a limited one. See In re Petering, 301 F.2d 676, 681-82 (CCPA 1962) (A disclosure that allows one skilled in the art to “at once envisage each member of [a] limited class” describes each member of the class “as if [the reference] had drawn each structural formula or had written each name.”). It does not apply to a situation where, as here, limitations must be selected from different parts of a reference that are not clearly associated with each other, and where a further choice must be made from among a list of numerous possible components.
