RE: Anyone used Clearium mountant?

From:Walzer Susan

It may be true that if slides sit in isopropyl too long they may fade. We
change the iso. daily, coverslip as soon as we can and if slides cannot be
coverslipped soon we put them in xylene to hold. We have slides from years
ago and no fading.

We tried a sample and hated it. The stained slides began fading in as little
as 3 days.It was the same for cytology.
