Wo, from your post, it's not quite clear exactly what type of product  
you are talking about and what the application is. For plant tissue  
culture, we use 3M micropore tape (a sort of porous cloth tape),  
which when sold to be used in tissue culture can be quite expensive.  
I buy it from an on-line medical supply company for just over $1 per  
1" by 10 yard roll (2.5 cm X 9.2 m). Also, we find we can reuse the  
tape several times. Not sure if this is the type of product you are  
talking about, but I hope it helps.
