Brandel and Tomtek both make nice harvesters that can have automated
washes and harvest onto either filter paper or onto 96-well plates with
GF/C or GF/B in them.  Personally, I prefer Brandel harvesters, but they
are a bit expensive.  I just looked at a microtiter format semi-automated
Brandel and was quoted $14,900.
