Another UK response....
I've not had any problem with either colony picking or PCR using toothpicks
from the local chemists (=pharmacists/drugstore). They're very cheap, and
personally I prefer them to cocktail sticks which I find too sharp. YMMV.

off-hand. If you want to know, give me an Email and I'll check in the
