    After completion of immunostaining, remove slide from water, apply sufficient drops of Aqueous Mounting Medium upon section and mount coverglass. Coverslip should be immobilized within 30 minutes at room temperature. To avoid air bubbles within mounting medium, DO NOT SHAKE VIAL. If air bubbles are evident during coverslipping, carefully trim the vial tip with a sharp blade to create a larger opening and improve media flow. These directions are recommendations; however, they may be altered according to procedures established in-house.

nice item, fast shipping

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
This mounting medium has very good quality. It does not cause bubbles if you are very careful and only use a small drop. My slides are still good several months after using the mounting medium.

Thank you for contacting us and your interest in our products.

For the experiment the customer is planning to perform, the BrightMount (ab103746) or BrightMount/Plus (ab103748) would be most appropriate and would be compatible with the fluorescent dyes the customer wants to use. The BrightMount/Plus provides the added advantage of containing an anti-fading agent which preserves strong fluorescent staining, allowing the user to view slides months after they have been stained.

I hope this information has been of help. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.
