                GROSS, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                              

                                            DECISION ON APPEAL                                                   
                       This is a decision on appeal from the Examiner's final rejection of                       
                claims 13, 15, and 21 through 23.                                                                
                       Appellant's invention relates to a pathology grossing tool with two                       
                arrays of sharp tines.  The gap between the two arrays is set for the desired                    
                thickness of the tissue slices to be cut using the grossing tool.   Claim 13 is                  
                illustrative of the claimed invention, and it reads as follows:
