I have had good luck the past 3 years with the Boehringer-Mannheim
digoxigenin/Lumiphos system. Although its sensitivity still doesn't match
that of 32P (in may hands), it is much more convenient. I make probes by
the incorporation of dig-labeled dUTP using PCR; a colleague in the lab
also uses 3' end-labeled oligos with success. Feel free to E-mail me
directly for more information.
