Applicant is required under 35 U.S.C. 121 to elect a single disclosed species for 
prosecution on the merits to which the claims shall be restricted if no generic claim is 
finally held to be allowable. Currently, claims 1, 20, and 35 are generic. 

Applicant is advised that a reply to this requirement must include an identification 
of the species that is elected consonant with this requirement, and a listing of all claims 
readable thereon, including any claims subsequently added. An argument that a claim 
is allowable or that all claims are generic is considered nonresponsive unless 
accompanied by an election. 

Upon the allowance of a generic claim, applicant will be entitled to consideration 
of claims to additional species which depend from or otherwise require all the limitations 
of an allowable generic claim as provided by 37 CFR 1.141. If claims are added after 
the election, applicant must indicate which are readable upon the elected species. 
MPEP § 809.02(a). 

Applicant is advised that the reply to this requirement to be complete must 
include (i) an election of a species or invention to be examined even though the 
requirement be traversed (37 CFR 1.143) and (ii) identification of the claims 
encompassing the elected invention. 

The election of an invention or species may be made with or without traverse. To 
reserve a right to petition, the election must be made with traverse. If the reply does not 
distinctly and specifically point out supposed errors in the restriction requirement, the 
election shall be treated as an election without traverse.

Should applicant traverse on the ground that the inventions or species are not 
patentably distinct, applicant should submit evidence or identify such evidence now of 
record showing the inventions or species to be obvious variants or clearly admit on the 
record that this is the case. In either instance, if the examiner finds one of the inventions 
unpatentable over the prior art, the evidence or admission may be used in a rejection 
under 35 U.S.C. 103(a) of the other invention. 

2. Applicant is reminded that upon the cancellation of claims to a non-elected 
invention, the inventorship must be amended in compliance with 37 CFR 1.48(b) if one 
or more of the currently named inventors is no longer an inventor of at least one claim 
remaining in the application. Any amendment of inventorship must be accompanied by 
a request under 37 CFR 1.48(b) and by the fee required under 37 CFR 1.1 7(i). 

Any inquiry concerning this communication or earlier communications from the 
examiner should be directed to Tammie Heller whose telephone number is 571-272-

3:30 pm. 

If attempts to reach the examiner by telephone are unsuccessful, the examiner's
