Micropore works great, I haven't seen a post that said it doesn't.


I think my primary concern is why is tyvek useless?  And how does micropore tape hold a title over it?  Who knows you might convince me to use microtape from now on, as I've got both tyvek and tape.

well since you already have it use it I guess. What I'm saying is for noobs who don't have it micropore tape works just fine. Walgreens CVS walmart target and every large grocery store carries it in the pharmacy section. Its not a special trip to the UPS store just to get some tyvek, ya dig? hence for me, and others I'm sure, tyvek is pretty near useless. Have spawned hundreds of jars just using tape, for lc, g2g, MS, all good results with minimum contam.

Tyvek is VERY useful, so is micropore tape. It really just depends on how you have your lids set up, and your personal preference.

They can BOTH used for the same thing. GAS EXCHANGE... which ALL jars need... It doesn't matter if its a syringe noc, a g2g, an LC noc... WHATEVER. You have to have adequate gas exchange for them to colonize properly.

REALLY, it all boils down to preference. I use a combination of both, but generally i PREFER Tyvek because it suits my lid setup well.

Here is a picture of the basic lid setup I use.


And another...


Now with both of these, they are unfinished. I add a generous bead of RTV silicone to the small hole for a SELF HEALING injection port. No micropore tape needed after inoculation.

Now I also use the same basic setup for my metal lids... (YES, I use both)

Here is a pic of those.


With the metal lids, I find that the RTV doesn't adhere to the metal all that well, so i use a combination of the tyvek (for gas exchange) and a piece of micropore tape (or band-aid... same diff) to cover the injection hole after puncturing the Tyvek.

There are a ton of different ways to set up your lids, and many uses for both Tyvek and Micropore tape...

Find what works best for you and go with it.

Cheers,

Oh and BTW, the Home Depot Tyvek is perfect, Don't listen to those who say its too thin. It's the preffered type of Tyvek to use IMHO. Envelopes and the Tyvek suits work as well, but are not quite the same.

Ive used all three, and prefer the "real" stuff better. And DONT double the layers, you will restrict gas exhange too much. (which i find the thicker envelopes tend to do.)

GL to ya, and I hope my post may clear up some of the questions you had.

Can we just end the Tyvek vs micropore battle...lol.  Some use tyvek and others use micropore.  Use what you have, or if you feel like stickin it to the USPS order some but dont use a link from here.
