I have previously obtained nylon mesh from a local (Cape Town, South Africa) screen printing company, who were only too happy to donate a good few square metres of different mesh sizes after I explained what it was to be used for - filtering FNABs of solid tumours prior to DNA Ploidy and Cell Cycle Analyses.

Hi Jill,

Not a local source for you but useful to people over this side of the water
is a company called Clarcor who market the Lockertex range of products which
includes a wide range of mesh in a number of different pore sizes. We use
these as they are both autoclavable and sterilisable.

Details: http://www.clarcoruk.com/lockertex/index.htm

Best wishes,
Derek
