Dual laser compensation

The analog and digitial electronics on the Facstar+ does not support 
compensation between lasers. To minimize the excitation of PE by the 
dye laser, we run our dye laser at about 602nm. This decreases the 
efficiency of excitation of Texas Red, so it is best to use brighter 
antibodies with this fluorochrome.

Has anyone found, made, thought of, a way to compensate between lasers
on a machine such as a FACStar plus?
We see bright PE appearing in the Texas Red channel, apparently 
by the dye laser.
