[Cytometry] Problem with PE compensation in PerCP

Dear everyone,


For recent experiments on our BD Aria we wanted to combine a PE labelled
antibody with the viability dye 7AAD.

However, the PE antibody is giving problems: we need a compensation of
more than 100% in the PerCP channel, where we want to measure the 7AAD.
In the last experiment it was even 134%!


Does anybody know what can be the cause of this? 

When I take a look at the BD Spectrum viewer, there is hardly any
overlap from PE in PerCP.
