Re: [Histonet] AEC substrate for IHC

From:Gayle Callis

You cannot use any solvent to dehydrate, mount your coverslip from rinse
water with an aqueous mounting media - AquaMount from VWR, or any other
vendors product. Some people like liquid coverslip called Crystal Mount
placed directly over the section, allowed to dry, and after it is dry,
mount a permanent coverslip with regular toluene or xylene based mounting

Other companies have equivalents to all these mounting medias, you can shop
around or others will make suggestions.
