A technical teaching that instructs the use of a discovery to achieve a certain result is susceptible of patent protection independent of whether the teaching contains an “inventive surplus” above and beyond the use for the intended purpose of the discovered principle of natural law.

In such a case there is no need to designate the sequence in the patent claim as having been obtained in isolation or by a technical process.
