luciferin-esters and flow cytometry?

Dear Netters, I have heard that it is possible to assay luciferase
activity by
ordinary flow cytometry in individual cells using luciferin-esters.

Although I have found one reference, which I do not have handy, for
luciferase expression by FACS, these good people perform the assay on sf9
insect cells. Does anyone have experience with such an assay system on
mammalian cells? Thanks in advance,
