Well if you have done it successfully before, I'm not sure what could cause
the problem. Maybe you could check the labeling efficiency of your probe.

Suicide. I do hope it doesn't feel suicidal. That's a vector which has an
origin of replication that does not work in the target organism, and
therefore must integrate into the chromosome to yield resistant colonies.
