you could use regular "substrate-enzyme" colour developing methods...
(please check up the substrates for alkaline phosphatase and HRP in
"Molecular Cloning" by Sambrook and Maniatis; I don't remember it on
the top of my head ...been a while since I used them.)....they work
well, if you have high specificity antibodies.

Alternatively, you could use the "Licor" machine, if you have access
to it, which uses some special IR tagged secondaries.... I have seen a
demo of it, and have'nt really used it myself to particularly know how
it works.
