You might give the GREYCstoration plug-in a try. It also installs a
standalone command line program that can do noise reduction to 16 bit images.
The controls are not well documented and I have found that values that work
for me are MUCH different from the values that the controls default to.
Also the preview in the plug-in is next to useless. But once you figure out
what setting work best it is a very powerful tool.
