I think your filters should work fine.	On our DiVa we use around 450 
volts for the blue and up to 800 volts for the red (give or take 50V) 
in order to put the major viable population (G0/1) at about mid-scale 
in both UV1 and UV2 directions, both on a linear scale, zero 
compensation for both, with UV laser power of 50mW.  In our experience, 
getting the staining right is much more difficult than getting the 
instrument setup right.  Timing is critical.
