Compatible with horseradish peroxidase, alkaline phosphatase, and glucose oxidase substrates
Dries with an ideal refractive index
VectaMount™ Mounting Medium (H-5000) is an optically clear and odorless formula for permanently preserving histochemical stains or precipitable enzyme substrates in tissue sections or cell preparations. VectaMount™ Mounting Medium contains no toluene or xylene. It has a viscosity which provides for easy application and uniform spreading over the tissue section. Mounted sections are clear with an ideal refractive index suitable for high resolution oil immersion microscopy. VectaMount™ Mounting Medium preserves the color and intensity of preparations stained with enzyme substrates such as DAB, TMB, and BCIP/NBT, as well as our proprietary substrates Vector® NovaRED™ , Vector® VIP, Vector® SG, ImmPACT™ DAB, ImmPACT™ DAB EqV, ImmPACT™ NovaRED™ , ImmPACT™ VIP, ImmPACT™ SG, Vector® Red, ImmPACT™ Vector® Red, Vector® Blue, and Vector® Black. The crystal formation that frequently occurs with the alkaline phosphatase substrate BCIP/NBT using other permanent mounting media is essentially eliminated.
