Amersham sell a range of gridded membranes for colony lifting...I believe I've
used the Nylon (hybond-n) ones but not sure if there is a nitrocellulose

I believe S&S also sell those.....they have handy tabs to allow you to lift
off the membranes without digging a chunk of agar out the side of the dish.


good luck
