Dear all,

We are running 5-color flow on FC500 and have some compensation issues.
The 5-color cocktail includes antibodies with the following
fluorechromes: FITC, PE, PE-Cy5.5, PE-Cy7 and APC. Do you think there
might be some reagent interactions in this panel combo, especially
PE-Cy5.5 and other dyes? Our single controls were well compensated using
the software-generated matrices, however the fully stained samples were

Thanks for any comment/suggestion.
