You might try using SYBR Green I which can be excited by blue (488)
light.  We have begun to look picoplankton samples in marine samples and
this stain seems so far, to do the job.  The reference for the technique

"Enumeration of cell cycle analysis of natural populations of marine
picoplankton by flow cytometry using the nucleic acid stain SYBR Green I
by Dominique Marie, Frederic Partensky, Stephan Jacquet and Daniel
Vaulot, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Jan 1997, Vol 63, Nol 1,
p 186-193."
