UV-fixing of filters.

Dear Fellow Netlanders,
	Has anyone experience with UV fixation of nucleic acids
to filters?  Yes, I've used Stratalinkers before but I don't believe
that I have access to one here.  What I do have access to is a
transilluminator and I spoke to someone at Boehringer Mannheim this
morning who assured me that I should put my charged nylon on this,
(face down, natch :-)) and leave it for five minutes.  Yet this is
quit a long time right next to a strong UV source, and I can't help 
but wonder if the nucleic acids are going to badly degraded by this
method.  Thanks in advance for any advice.
