   One source to try is:

   Ambion Inc.
   2130 Woodward St.
   Austin, TX 78744-1832

   I used their kit with some modifications, and it was fair.  I would not
suggest their asymmetric PCR method for amplifying a probe, in that the
probe I got was WAY too cold for any assays.  Otherwise, its a kit form of
the protocol listed in the Red Book for the most part.  It is convenient,
but I am unsure it is worth paying for, compared to just following the Red
Book protocol.

   Good luck.
