In regard to the comments on USA/Scientific Plastics' aerosol tips, my
only experience with them was using several dozen boxes during a sabbatical
in France recently.  Upon opening many of the boxes, I found that the filters
had "floated" out of the tips, probably due to static electricity, and were
rolling around in the box.  In was inconvenient, and risky from a contamination
standpoint to replace them.  One isn't paying for that kind of problem and
I have not experienced it with other brands of aerosol resistant tips.
