Note: For GFP, a 515/20 filter is optimal.

The "Advanced Configuration" is the default cytometer configuration and was designed for a specific set of commonly used fluorochromes in which all detectors are used simultaneously. Filters in this configuration may not be optimal for your fluorochrome combination. Additional filters are available.
