I'm using whatman paper cat.# 3030-6188 for western blotting


I use Whatman's #1 for filtering solutions and for sending plasmid DNA. Glass fibre (GF series) can be used for DNA extraction. NA-45 paper can be used for gel extraction of DNA.

I use 3mmChr chromatograpy paper for westerns. It is cheap and comes in big sheets.
