You might try Mowiol from Calbiochem.  You have to make it up yourself from a
polyvinyl alcohol solid.  They give you the protocol.  It's supposed to
photobleaching, although I've found that this depends alot on the fluorophore
used.  It takes about a day to dry.

Subject:       Mounting media

Hello Everyone,
	I need some recommendations for a mounting media.  It needs to be water
soluble for 100 um. sections of immunofluorescence.  The media I'm using now
doesn't always dry so the coverslips are moving.  This is quite a problem for
confocal microscopy.
Thanks in advance,
