Reduction to Practice

There are two limbs to this term. Actual and Constructive. Actual reduction to practice refers to the physical manifestation of the Invention. It refers to the actual making of the apparatus, article, compound or composition. In the case of a process or method it is to the actual carrying out of the method or process steps. Constructive reduction to practice is usually completed by the filing of a Patent Application that provides sufficient information for an ordinary skilled but otherwise unimaginative worker to make and use the invention without undue research or experimentation.
