Multiple Simultaneous Probes in Northerns?

Take a look at the Boehringer multicolor detection (i.e., "rainbo" probe) 
set.  The essential idea is to be able to detect three different probes, 
giving three different color reactions, simultaneously on the same blot.  
The original reference to the procedure is:

Hoeltke, H.J., Ettl, I., Finken, M., West, S., and W. Kunz. 1992. Anal. 
Biochem. 207:24-31.

In the U.S., the product is marketed under Boehringer-Mannheim catalog 
number 1465 341.  We've tried it and it does work.

Good luck,
