FACS detection of myoblasts and fibroblasts

Hi all, 

I'd like to characterize by FACS analysis a myblast cell culture 
derived from a human skeletal muscle biopsy. There probably grow 
some fibroblasts, so I have two main cell populations.

As far as I am aware there is no myoblast specific marker, thus I'd 
do the following:

1) stain almost all cells with anti MHC-1
2) stain fibroblasts with anti-Thy.1 (CD-90)

1a) stain myoblasts with anti NCAM, since I assume that fibroblasts 
will not express this surace antigen

Would someone (more familiar with the matter than I) like to 
contribute his/her thoughts?
