U.S. patent law Edit
Consisting of is a transitional phrase used in a patent claim that excludes any element, step or ingredient not specified in the claim. The claim is subject to avoidance if another element is added. A variation is "consisting essentially of"; it usually allows for an inconsequential amount of another element to be added.
