Do fluorescently modified oligonucleotides need to be protected from light?

The main cause of oligonucleotide damage from light comes from the UV radiation in natural light. The effects of artificial light on oligo stability are not clear. If fluorescently modified oligos will be exposed to sustained light, protective cover from the lighting source (e.g., using brown tubes and/or foil covering) should be considered.
