     Does anyone have any suggestions for cheaper alternatives to Whatman
3MMChr (commonly known as 3MM) paper for drying sequencing and bandshift gels? 
We're satisfied with the performance of Whatman 3MMChr for these purposes, but
we would love to find something less expensive.      
     Many thanks!
