labeling oligos for FISH

I am relatively new to the world of fluorescent in situ
hybridization, so I thought I would ask a few questoins here. I
want to do FISH with oligos. I think I will probably get the oligos
synthesized in house and buy Molecular Porbes labeled nucleleotides
and end label the oligos. The problem is, I don't know what kit to
use to do the end labeling (and clean up afterwards).
I talked to a tech service person at Mol Probes, but she was not
particularly forth coming with a suggestion (want to cover their
butt in case what they suggest doesn't work, no doubt). The labeled
nucleotides will likely be labeled with BODIPY-FL, Texas Red and/or
Cascade Blue (Chromatides(tm)).
Do you have any experience with labeling, clean up and subsequent
FISH with any of the many kits for doing end labeling? If so, I
would really like to have you input.
Thanks so much
