[Cytometry] Custom BV510 filter for Gallios

Hi Suzanne,

I will be showing some data on how can you standardize measurments of 
particular (EuroFlow) panel on Canto - Cyan - Navios on ISAC-CYTO in San 
One result is that the filters (and differences thereof) play 
surprisingly little role.
Based on the data we have so far, we will not change filters for either 
Pacific Blue / Pacific Orange nor BV421 / BV510 containing tubes (you do 
need to adjust compensation, as the dyes do have different emission 

My personal view after playing a bit with optimal filters for Pacific 
Orange vs the issues with AmCyan is that you gain only a little more 
signal if you find "the Optimal" filter (assuming the manufacturing 
quality is always great), however the game is more about avoiding the 
spillover from your other dyes into your "Optimal" filter.

Best regards, Tomas

> How are you?  You have a 550/40 or so right now for Krome Orange in that position?  The BV510 will still be really strong with that filter but you are right, the peak is at 520-ish to be ideal.  Since you don't have a trigon on the Gallios, it's just a position for BV421 and BV510 (right?), you can use a 520/40nm filter to get the most out of the BV510.  We just released another 5 BV510 conjugates just today, so that list will grow fast and will also be conjugated to the harder to detect markers like CD197 and CD117, etc. If you were detecting the BV510 on a trigon/octagon so that the BV510 was wedged between BV421 and BV570, then you might not want a big 40nm bandpass since the BV570 spillover would be annoying.
