[Chlamydomonas] Frameshift mutagens

We are developing a reverse genetics strategy for finding mutations in 
specific genes. Presently we are using uv mutagenesis but would like to 
try other mutagens to get a broader spectrum of mutants. We have tried a 
frameshift mutagen, ICR-191. Does anyone have any experience to maximize 
the mutation rate using ICR-191? Is there other frameshift mutagens we 
could try with chlamy?
