 I used it for both Northerns and Southerns, and it worked fine with Nytran
 membranes (S&S). Try it, maybe you can get a free sample (that's how I got it 
 the first time around).
 There is one thing though; S&S stopped making their Nytran, and they were
 getting their membranes from a different manufacturer. This was about 2 or
 three years ago, and I don't know were that stands now. They swear that the
 membranes both work the same, but I haven't tried the new one myself.

 Good luck                            Michael van Waes.
