I am weighing options for handling high volume air particulate samples
(4in and 8x10" )in the field.

Currently we use commercial plastic bags (ziplock) to preserve the
sample during handling and shipping to an analytical laboratory.  We are
considering using an inner envelope of glassine to reduce the quantity
of material dislodged from the filter paper during sample handling.

I am not sure that glassine has significantly less static electricity
buildup than the plastic bags themselves and would like opions as well
as any emperical data to support a specific filter handling regime.
