Mounting Media

Selection of mounting media for immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence applications

The right mounting medium protects your signal and your samples while viewing and for short- and long-term archiving. Vector Laboratories offers you a selection of mounting media, each optimized for either immunohistochemistry (IHC) or immunofluorescence (IF).

When applying a coverslip, the correct mounting medium preserves your histochemical stains or precipitable enzyme substrates in tissue sections or cell preparations.

Maximum retention of signal intensity is crucial for visualizing and imaging fluorescently stained target antigens in cell and tissue specimens. VECTASHIELD Antifade Mounting Media inhibit fading and photobleaching of most fluorophores, dyes, fluorescent proteins, and stains.
