But, we do use AEC and therefore an aqueous mountant. The mountant that we use is Aquaperm which we get from Fisher Scientific. The product no. is 28-610-54. We apply it to the wet slides and then solidify the mountant in a 70 degree Celcius oven for approximately 30 minutes. We then coverslip the slides routinely with xylene, resinous mountant and coverslips. I hope this helps.
