P19 cell death

I'm seeing a fantastic amount of cell death following a low speed/low
pressure sort on my VantageSe and am wondering if anyone has experience
with these cells in particular or tips for preventing cell death in general.
I'm getting about 10-20% live cell recovery following a typical low
pressure sort at 3K/sec,  8 psi, and 18khz with a 100um nozzle.
I normally get an average 70% recovery across the board.The cells are P19
embryonic carcinoma
cells with CFSE as a marker.  They are collected in DMEM with 20% FBS
and pen/strep.
