mounting media

From:"Kinsley, David"

mounting media


I've had problems with some special stains, particularly neutral red, fading with toluene based mounting media.  I usually use Permount Xylene based for most staining and Immuno's.  Also, some alkaline phosphatase chromagens say that they fade in some solvents.  I usually air dry my AP slides after counterstaining, then soak in xylen and coverslip as normal.

Good Luck,
