          Depending on the purpose of it you might get a way with 
          surface labeling some yourself with FITC, but even that is 
          not only green.

          Otherwise you could try:

          We use 0.5u coumarin labeled beads (yellow-green) as 
          counting standard for the bacteria. The samples are 
          routinely run in 0.05% tween20 to keep the CV's low. That 
          also reduces carryover and does not effect the cell

Hello to all flow-ers:

Thanks to all those who replied on cleaning the machine after passing <2 um
beads. One more question : where can we buy beads that fluoresce ONLY in
green, around 1 um size. We asked Polyscience and they say that these beads
are to be custom made. We would appreciate any info. on where to look for
these. Thanks in advance!
