Ca flux in mice protocol

hello all -
I'd like to do some Ca flux experiments in mouse splenocytes.
It looks like loading with indo-1 is the way to go, and stimulating with
anti-CD3e clone 145-2C11.
Does anyone have a protocol they're willing to share?
In the literature I've seen indo-1 between 1 and 5 uM, and anti-CD3
between 1 and 90 ug/ml.
I'm hoping to do direct ex vivo studies on CD8 cells. We're thinking to
stimulate them to flux by addition of MHC I tetramer and sort by 62L
expression (using 4 color flow).
Can anyone give advice as to what anti-CD8 or anti-CD62L clones WON'T
stimulate Ca flux?
And finally, has anybody tried this sort of thing on PBMCs?
Thanks a bunch
