EMS Immuno Mount™ with strong anti-fading agent, 1, 4-phenylenediamine (PPD) is an aqueous mounting medium for preserving fluorescence of tissue and cell smears. This unique formula prevents rapid photobleaching of FITC, Texas Red, AMCA, Alexa fluoro 488, Alexa fluoro 594, tetramethyly rhodamine, and Redox. The fluorescence is retained during prolonged storage at 4°C in the dark. This medium contains phenylenediamine and is not suitable for immunofluorescence of Cy dyes, Phycoerythrin (R-PE), phyocyanin (PC), and allophycocyanin (APC).
Application: Immunofluorescence, confocal microscopy
Reagent: Ready to use mounting medium with dark coffee color. This color does not interfere with Immunofluorescence.
Refractive Index: 1.400 ± 0.002 (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.)
Storage: 2-8°C, DO NOT FREEZE
