Hi Karen,

I have no experience with your current experiment but I do have a 
potential solution. is selling a Qtracker kit with up to 3 
colors 565, 655 and 705nm.  If you excite with the 407 laser and use 
either the 655nm or 705nm dots, you should get the data you are 
looking for with minimal spectral overlap.

Good luck.
