Question about Southern blotting - (Jul/30/2012 )

Where can I order the paper towels for southern blotting ?


They are just generic paper towels, you don't need any special ones. Have a google for interfold paper towels for your region.


I knew a guy who used old (unused) disposable nappies that he had in his house that his child had out-grown.
Not that I'm advocating that, just that you need to use any (the cheapest) paper toweling you can find. Interfold towels are best because they're cheap and a good size and have good stacking/structural capability.
