Redivue radionucleotides from Amersham

Mon Mar 7 11:28:52 EST 1994

    Recently our lab has switched to using the new Redivue 
radionucleotides from Amersham.(For those who aren't 
familiar with this product it apparently is nucleotide 
containing a violet dye that allows the user to 'see' where 
the radioactivity is).
    Anyway since using the new product we have been getting 
poor results with hot-PCR reactions that previously were 
OK. This is also true for other reactions eg. sequencing, 
    The big question is has anyone out there had similar 
problems to us or are we just going thru a bad patch ;-)
Any help or info would be gratefully appreciated even if 
its just to corroborate our findings.
