Question

What is the refractive index of Fluoroshield mounting medium?

Answer

Thank you for your inquiry. The refractive index of Fluoroshield Mounting Medium is: 1.364 ± 0.002 Please note that these numbers apply to these mounting mediums in solution. Refractive indexes change when the water solvent evaporates and mounting media dries on slides. We do not have the means to measure the refractive indexes of dry mounting mediums; however we expect the numbers to go higher when dried. The refractive index of water is 1.3330. If you are using other Fluoroshield Mounting Media (e.g. with DAPI), we also have the refractive index available on request. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further advice or information.
