Krypton Laser for GFP?

All Colleagues,

A researcher here at UCONN is considering using the 413nm violet line
of a Krypton laser to excite mutant GFP.  This researcher has been
somewhat dissatisfied with our results using 488nm excitation on the
FACStar Plus (by the way we've been using a 500 EFLP in Fl1 to
capture the emission).  Can anyone enlighten me as to the worthiness
of this approach?  Is there a new GFP out there or is 413nm excitation
really significantly better?
