Before MARKEY, Chief Judge, NICHOLS, Senior Circuit Judge, and PAULINE NEWMAN, Circuit Judge.


Stephen R. Duggan appeals the decision of the United States Patent and Trademark Office Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences, affirming the rejection of the claims at issue under 35 U.S.C. § 103, and the rejection of claim 85 under 35 U.S.C. § 112, in patent application Serial No. 127,308. We have reviewed the three separately claimed aspects of the invention, and carefully considered all of appellant's arguments in the briefs and presented at the hearing. We conclude that the opinion of the board, adhered to on reconsideration, is correct. The board's decision is affirmed.
