comment Alternatives to TBE buffer for denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of DNA and RNA?
I've used Lithium Borate with an agarose gel and high voltages (>200). Didn't turn out as well as advertised the few times I tried it though - worse than TAE. If I had to try it again I would definitely lower the voltage.

comment Is there a cheap and easy way to check for potentially unsafe UV exposure?
That does seem obvious after looking at products available in a google search. Maybe one the reusable ~6 level color changing sensors would be adequate or even one of the ~$30 handheld digital models. Spending several hundred dollars is out of the question though. I was just hoping someone would say, oh yea all labs in the world use this cheap x sensor to warn us of excessive exposure (analogous to radiation badges).

Agreed, I'm still below the threshold for creating tags. Safety or visualization would have been remotely closer.
