Hi Albert,

Have you noticed any sign of fading in routine histological and IHC stained slides on storage? How long have you tried with this new mounting medium?

I was given a free sample of Richard-Allan Scientific Cytoseal 60 by a friend that works in the hospital lab.  I have been very satisfied by the drying time (less than a day) and the optical clarity.  This product is also compatible with several xylene substitutes, as well as xylene.  I also find the clean-up easier compared to Permount.
