Mounting media for microscopy

The final step of fluorescent staining of tissues and cells is their mounting under coverslips. The quality of microscope images depends on the choice of mounting medium. The medium must preserve the fluorescent signal, protect the sample from drying out and degradation, have a low viscosity for uniform distribution throughout the sample, and be optically similar to the coverslip.

Selecting a mounting medium with a refractive index close to 1.52 is essential to reduce light reflection and ensure maximum transparency and image quality. Moreover, for fluorescent dyes, such a medium must be prepared on an aqueous basis.

We offer mounting media that have all of the above characteristics. Our media will help preserve sample fluorescence and provide optimal conditions for sample storage and analysis.
