    Default micropore tape

    Hi all, another question in my prelude to flasking...
    it's been mentioned that three layers of micropore tape can be used for filters on vents for flasks. is this the 3m tape that's kind of papery they use when you get blood taken to stick the cotton on? and you put it on before the autoclave step?

    Yes, the papery stuff. Three layers, before autoclaving.

    Good luck!
