Commercial Nonradioactive Riboprobes?

I am a transplantation imunology researcher. I have spent the better 
part of the last 3 years developing a number of nonradioactively 
labelled riboprobes that are good for in situ hybridization and 
Northern blots. I have developed probes for Human IL2-10, Granzyme B, 
IFN-g, c-fos, some chemokines and selected rat and mouse specific 
probes as well. In my hands nonradioactively labelled riboprobes are 
more sensitive and specific than oligonucleotide probes and are good 
for at least 1 year in the freezer. I have since received requests for 
aliquots of these probes from colleagues from as far away as 
Australia. Some of my local colleagues have encouraged me to offer 
these for commercial sale. As I have spent a significant amount of 
time and effort developing these perhaps other researchers would not 
need to .
So the question is:
If I offered readymade riboprobes for sale would there be a market?. 
Would YOU have an interest in using them? What amounts? Would you need 
sense probes?
I guess what I am asking is if you think this is worth pursuing?
Thank you in advance for your attention.
Please reply to my email so as not to clutter the list.
