WHIPgroup was again successful in reversing an examiner’s rejection before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). The claimed invention is directed to a drying agent arrangement installed inside an instrument housing of an optical instrument. The Examiner rejected the claims as allegedly being anticipated by a prior patent publication. On Appeal, WHIPgroup argued that the cited art failed to show a drying agent arrangement having a “hygroscopic substance” as claimed. The Board agreed with WHIPgroup’s arguments and reversed the Examiner. A Notice of Allowance was mailed shortly after the Board’s decision.
