DNA and RNA Blotting and Hybridisation
This procedure is for blotting and hybridising a previously untested set of samples and/or probe. Once the hybridisation and washing conditions have been determined subsequent blots can be processed much more quickly. Notes

This procedure requires the use of radioactive isotope and all prospective users should be registered isotope users and have attended a course in handling radioisotopes. Specific details can be obtained from departmental radiation protection officers (Douglas Tocher for the Institute of Aquaculture) and specific instruction should be sought from experienced personnel. Radioisotopes may only be used in designated areas and their ordering, use and disposal must be authorised and logged according to strict procedures.
