We have had minimal problems with Hybond N+ in genomic and regular 
southerns, Northerns, and even with Oligo ECL.  For most, it is a workhorse 
in our lab.

I say minimal because we've have had an occasional "bad batch" of Hybond N+ 
which with a simple phone call has gleefully been replaced. Probably two 
batches in the last 6 years.

Hope this helps,
