Product Summary for VECTASHIELD(R) Antifade Mounting Medium

VECTASHIELD Antifade Mounting Medium is a unique, stable formula for preserving fluorescence. VECTASHIELD Mounting Medium prevents rapid photobleaching of fluorescent proteins and fluorescent dyes.

Features:

Inhibits photobleaching of fluorescent dyes and fluorescent proteins Ideal refractive index (1.45) Ready-to-use No warming necessary Can be stored without sealing for long term analysis Non-hardening formulation No counterstain

The original VECTASHIELD Mounting Medium does not solidify, but remains a liquid on the slide and can be stored without sealing. If desired, coverslips can be sealed around the perimeter with nail polish or a plastic sealant. Mounted slides should be stored at 4C, protected from light.

VECTASHIELD Mounting Media are compatible with a wide array of fluorochromes, enzymatic substrates, and fluorescent proteins.
