   I worked in a lab where we used photoreactive nucleotde analogs, to
analyze transcription reactions, and we did all our reactions in dark
brown microfuge tubes, however I can't remember where we got them, and
this enabled us to do our reactions in the light. We worried about long
term exposure to light but not short term, and we were using bromo-U
derivatives that were more sensitive to light!
