Alternative to Vectashield

From:Matt McElwee

Hello histonetters.  
We're doing a lot of fluorescent staining on 40 micron, perfusion
fixed, vibrating microtome cut, mouse brain sections.  We're using FITC,
Rhodamine Red-X, and Cy5 conjugated secondary antibodies.  The IHC is
going pretty well, but we are going through a lot of Vectashield
mounting medium from Vector Labs.  It works well, but it's getting a bit
pricey.  Does anyone know of a cheap, alternative mounting medium for
fluorescence?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
