Hi everyone,

Our lab uses the type of CO2 pad for anaesthetizing flies that requires a 
blotting paper type material and nitex nylon to be stretched over the top 
of the pad. The paper that we've been using came with a kit sold by Applied 
Scientific that included the pads, the paper, and Nitex nylon. We have 
never really found the blotting paper in the kit to be porous enough (for 
reference, the product number is GB002). Does anyone have any suggestions 
for a thinner type of paper to use that will work better that that sold by 
Applied Scientific?
