                             Ex parte MITCHELL LEVINSON                               
                                Appeal No. 2000-0298                                  
                             Application No. 08/832,013                               
                                      ON BRIEF                                        
          Before PATE, McQUADE and CRAWFORD, Administrative Patent                    
          CRAWFORD, Administrative Patent Judge.                                      

                                 DECISION ON APPEAL                                   
               This is a decision on appeal from the examiner's final                 
          rejection of claims 1 through 14, which are all of the claims               
          pending in this application.                                                
               The appellant's invention relates to a sensor which                    
          includes a biasing means having an initial relaxed position                 
          which is compressed.  The biasing means is expandable upon the              
          absorption of fluid.  An understanding of the invention can be              
          derived from a reading of exemplary claim 1, which appears in               
          the appendix to the appellant’s brief.
