Background

FluoroGel is an aqueous-based mounting medium designed for the preservation of fluorescence-stained tissue sections. It can also be used with conventional fluorescent tracers such as fluorescein (FITC), Rhodamine (TMRITC) and Texas Red. FluoroGel is a non-glycerol based mounting medium. It is specially formulated without glycerol to avoid the deleterious effects of this compound in some of the phycobili-protein based detection systems. This makes FluoroGel the mounting medium of choice when phycobili proteins are used as tracers. This product is not suitable for binary substrates generally used for immunohistochemistry. A product like Clear Mount (aqueous mounting media) or Limonene (organic mounting media) should be used.
