Help designing a liquid class for a bubbly mixture

Has anyone done any work in designing liquid classes for liquids that foam up quite easily? Something that behaves like a solution of SDS.

I have worked with foamy solutions in the past and what worked for me was slowish dispenses and aspirating more than you are going to dispense. This ensured that you could hit the volume you needed without introducing any extra bubbles. Blowouts are your nemesis with foamy solutions, so avoid them as much as possible.

Hopefully you don’t need to mix, but if you do, I always leaved the tips completely submerged and again be very careful with introducing air into your wells. Sometimes this may mean losing a bit of your solution at the end of the mix by leaving just a bit of solution in the tips.
