"A Rapid Optimized Protocol for Downward Alkaline Southern Blotting of DNA"

BioTechniques 15(2):260-262, Aug. 1993

We're using it and it works as described. Schleicher & Schuell market a 
downward transfer device called a TurboBlotter. Untill Dec. 31, 1993 you can 
get the TurboBlotter "free" if you buy a refill (5 - Nytran 11X14 cm, $47 
US or 5 - BA-S 11X14 cm, $43 US). We've ordered a couple but they haven't 
arrived yet.
