Description & Specifications

Specifications

Quantity 10mL
Storage Requirements Storage at room temperature is recommended but can also be stored frozen (-5 to -30°C). Protect from light.

Special chemical components protect fluorescent dyes from fading (photobleaching) during fluorescence microscopy experiments, and delivers this protection without significantly quenching the initial fluorescence signal. ProLong Gold Antifade Mountant is a curing mountant that forms a near-perfect optical path (1.47 RI) and allows longer-term storage of the sample. Ready-to-use (room temperatures storage and no mixing required)-just apply a drop to the sample, add a coverslip, cure and image. ProLong Gold mountant is available with or without DAPI nuclear stain. ProLong Gold Antifade Mountant is for superior antifade protection of fluorescent proteins and fluorescent dyes, ProLong™ Diamond Antifade Mountant is recommended. Available with or without DAPI nuclear stain.
