Happy New Year Flowers:

We are wanting to add a 405 nm violet laser to our LSR II and were 
wondering if it is cheaper(or even possible) to do it without going 
thru BD.  We would obviously need to add some PMTs at the same time.

I would love to hear from anyone who has done this without going thru 
BD as well as those who used BD for the upgrade.

I am interested in cost and how hard/easy this would be to do myself. 
I am quite good at working on our Calibur and Scan as well as my 

Thanks in advance as always.
