RE: BrdU-FITC / PI cell cyclePersonally I seldom have a problem with spectral overlap in a BrdUrd-FITC PI experiment. If you record the PI fluorescence at 695, you will certainly reduce any spill over from FITC into PI. However, that wavelength is sub-optimal for PI, which is best recorded at a lower wavelength such as 620 nm.
I compensation needs to be applied, it can be applied in the usual fashion.
If you download FCSExpress Reader from the denovosoftware Web site, you can see an example at http://publish.denovosoftware.com/downloads/26E0DEC1-8E80-4B93-8A4F-D17BDC8D7E30/BrdUrd_PI.fe_launch.
A compensation has bee applied in software to correct the small overlap from fluorescein into PI. The larger fluorescence of the G2/M cells compared to G1 in the fluorescein channel was probably due to the increased autofluorescence of the larger cells.

this may not be the answer you are looking for, but, if you detect PI in "FL3" ie using a std filter for Cy5-PE (like 695/40), there is almost no compensation needed if the other color is FITC

To study cell cycle, I use PI with anti-BrdU FITC
PI is on linear scale and my BrdU-FITC is on log
How do you compensate this type of plot?
Any help/insight will be very much appreciated
