EMS Shield Mounting Medium With 4,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI) and Propyl Gallate (PG)

Available Options:


EMS Shield with DAPI is an aqueous mounting medium for preserving fluorescence of tissue and cell smears. This unique formula prevents rapid photobleaching of FITC, Texas Red, AMCA, Cy2, Cy3, Cy5, Alexa fluoro 488, Alexa fluoro 594, Green fluorescent protein (GFP), tetramethyly rhodamine, Redox. Phycoerythrin (RP-E), Phycocyanin (PC), and Allophycocyanin (APC). Fluorescence is retained during prolonged storage at 4°C in the dark. This medium does not contain phenylenediamine, which destroys immunofluorescence of Cy dyes, RP-E, PC and APC. This mounting medium is fortified with DAPI which is a counter-stain for DNA. This product is to be used in situ hybridization techniques or other methods where fluorescence of DNA staining is required. DAPI excites at 360nm and emits at 460nm, producing a blue fluorescence. RNA is also stained with DAPI. May encounter problems with frozen brain or other frozen tissues with lots of fat.

Application: Immunofluorescence, confocal microscopy

Reagent: Ready to use mounting medium

Refractive Index: 1.364 ± 0.002 (This number applies to this mounting medium 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.) Storage: 2-8°C, Protect from light, DO NOT FREEZE
