I put this formulation together after reading several papers on antifade
mediums and discussing mediums with tech support people from Molecular
Probes and Vector Laboratories. The formulation I described is referenced
in Transplantation, Vol 71, 132-142, No 1, 1-15-2001 as part of the
Materials & Methods. Some of the references on DABCO that I used to prepare
the formulation are: Journal of Immunological Methods, 55 (1982) 231-242
and Journal of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry, 33 No 8, 755-761, 1985.
