Maybe all the merging of companies means phasing out products??

I found the little tea bag style at EMS (Electron Microscopy Sciences) 
Biopsy bags, Cat # 62326-05 for 500/pk

We have used lens paper, folded, but you have to careful to do that 
carefully.  Also, some lens papers shred when trying to open up and 
retrieve a tissue, so we use harder surface lens paper.  Not ideal but 
works in a pinch.
