Has anyone used a mountant called flouromount from BDH?  I have a 
bottle but no information.

Is this a permanent mounting medium and how well does it preserve the 

I know it's Xylene based so I assume you treat sections exactly as 
you would if using DPX. ie dehydrate through graded alcohols/xylene 
to coverslip. Yes?

Is it suitable for TRITC and FITC which are the two commonly used in our lab?

Anyone with experience in this product, I'd love to hear your 
comments on it. Thanks, Cathy
