FACS for microtubules

I have a bacterial toxin which appears to be desrupting human neutrophil
structure very dramatically without killing the cell, and would like to
quantitate microtubule number in these PMN.
I have a primary antibody to alpha-tubulin (Amersham), an appropriate
FITC-tagged secondary antibody, and a method for cell permeabilization.
Is this a feasible idea? Does anyone have any personal experience with
doing this in any cell type? Is colchicine a good positive control?
