Well, being affiliated with Ambion :-)..thank you for the recommendation. In
reality, there are only a few (3) companies that actually make membranes. I
am told that if you actually saw these guys with big squeegies slopping the
mix onto the nylon backing you wouldn't believe it. In any case, some of what
you pay for is Quality Control. We actually check every lot of membrane we
sell for performance in northern blotting  and non isotopic detection. Both
signal and background is quantitated.

I doubt the problem was the hybond N+, but you never know.
