Hi Oliver,
Instead of, or in conjuction with an additive you can dilute the 
fragments to get reasonable RFUs.  On our 3730 the PCR reactions were 
typically diluted 40 to 120 fold.  We would titrate a few samples per 
marker at 40, 80 and 120 fold, then pick the best dilution for the 
rest of the study.
