transpore vs. micropore vs. durapore.....
    #5305956 - 02/16/06 10:48 AM (8 years, 8 months ago)

WELL........I found a whole stash of medical tapes still in a bag buried in my bathroom. They look brand new.

Now, I know that you are supposed to use MICROPORE tape. However, I have a roll of tape that says durapore and another roll that says transpore.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any links or knew offhand what the differences between these tapes were?

Hmm... I can't tell you off hand, but I seem to remember agar explaining it to someone before. Perhaps he'll enlighten us both.

i just bought some of the transpore tape yesterday, and i the same dilema, but its not that complicated.

Durapore is not breathable, so dont use it.
Transpore is breathable, plastic, and its also stretchy and easy to use.
Micropore is also breathable, but the tape itself was paper tape, i thought that would be bad.

i bought tht transpore and it didnt hold up on the PC. go with the mircopore, paper cant melt.
i was using it for LC and i thoght that the paper might get soggy when i shook the jar.

This is the only negative I have found about the micropore tape. If it gets wet, it wicks contams horribly. If you do happen to get it wet during a good LC swirling, immediately soak a paper towel, cottonball, etc., in alcohol and completely saturate the micropore tape.

I'd be worried that the alcohol would wick into the LC and possibly harm it. I just use 2 RTV silicone injector ports. One for withdrawing the LC with a syringe and the other for a polfil stuffed syringe so there is no vacuum effect. The LC will get plenty of oxygen when shaken each day without the use of filters.
