Do you happen to know if these mounting media autofluoresce? (I don't know what
AEC is, so this might be a silly question.) I've been searching for a permanent
aqueous mdium for various fluorescent stains, so if one or more of the mountants
you mention is free of fluorescence, then I would love to know about it. Thanks.
