VECTASHIELD® Mounting Medium with DAPI
VECTASHIELD with DAPI - VECTASHIELD® Mounting Medium is a unique, stable formula for preserving fluorescence.
VECTASHIELD Mounting Medium with DAPI prevents rapid photobleaching of fluorescein, rhodamine, Texas Red®, and other fluorescent reagents such as Cy3, Cy5, Alexa Fluor® 488, Alexa Fluor® 594, and DyLight™ dyes.* Sections mounted in VECTASHIELD® Mounting Medium retain fluorescence during prolonged storage.
VECTASHIELD DAPI Mounting Medium is supplied in a bottle fitted with a cone-seal cap. A cap fitted with a drop dispenser pipet is also included. The cone-seal cap can be replaced with the drop dispenser cap for routine use and during storage. Although the pipet bulb is made of inert materials, it is suggested that once the drop dispenser cap has been secured on the bottle, the bottle should be stored in an upright position.
To mount tissues or cells on a slide, dispense one drop of VECTASHIELD with DAPI Mounting Medium onto the section. Then coverslip and allow VECTASHIELD® Mounting Medium to disperse over the entire section. Applying an excess of mounting medium is not recommended. The special pipet supplied with the product is designed to deliver small drop volumes of approximately 25 μl.
