We have a undergrade in our lab working on the GFP protein for his 
undergrade research project.  He used plastic petri dishes to grow the Ecoli 
barring the pGFP plasmid at 37 C over night with or without IPTG.  He put a 
piece of black paper under the plates and shined with long wavelength UV.  
It was quite clear to distinguish the Ecoli barring pGFP from negative
