Abstract (en)

A disposable pipette tip (10) having an aerosol absorbing foam as a barrier (60) to fluid flow that does not interfere with air flow through the pipette tip (10). The aerosol absorbing foam is an open cell foam having a web-like structure that permits the flow of air through the foam and passageway but prevents droplets or aerosols from passing through the foam and passageway. The flow of air is sufficient to permit an automated aspirating instrument to detect fluid using air flow changes. <IMAGE>
