This kind of behavior can often be put down to residual ethanol remaining in
the sample, which disturbs the hydrodynamic focusing - you could check the
user's protocol and if necessary get them to try washing the cells in
staining medium then re-running them,

Dear flowers, Recently in running samples for a client, I noticed that
forward scatter and FL2 fluorescence of PI stained cells would move to
the right on histograms. In other words, it appeared smaller cells with
lower PI staining would accumulate first and then larger cells with more
red fluorescence would accumulate. Has anyone had this happen to them
and what would cause it? Thanks for any insight.
