Hello Peter,
     DuPont NEN Research Products has several non-radioactive products
for labeling and detection, including random primer flu-dUTP and oligo
3'-end labeling (flu-ddUTP) kits, nucleic acid chemilum reagents for HRP
detection, Western Blot Chemilum reagent, and non-rad nucleotide analogs.
