Mounting Media for IHC

Mounting media optimized for immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry

Using the correct mounting medium preserves your histochemical stains or precipitable enzyme substrates in tissue sections or cell preparations.

VectaMount® Permanent Mounting Medium

  • Non-aqueous mounting medium
  • Odorless and toluene- and xylene-free (low toxicity)
  • Resin-based
  • Viscosity formulated for easy application and uniform spreading
  • Compatible with most horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and alkaline phosphatase (AP) substrates
