Plaque hybridisation with nylon membranes?

Nylon membranes such as Hybond N are actually superior to nitrocellulose
in detecting sequences with low homology to the target ( also on
colony /plaque screening!), as all background binding of the probe 
disappears after two washes at RT.
Look at my Web site for a modification of the 
Church-Gilbert-Hauge-Goodman  protocol I use. 

Happy screening.
