They are called 'Glow in the dark' crayons and are avilable from
Crayola. I don't know if they are wax crayons or what. Check out
Elsevier Trends Journals technical tips online -

This has single sheet peer reviewed method papers for a number of
disciplines ie electrophoresis, mol.biology, microbiology etc.
Registration is free. Looks like a useful source of tips including those
published in Trends in Genetics over the years.

The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get 
sliced from time to time....
