Aqueous Mounting Media, Update

Several labs have and continue to use the newly made aqueous mounting media.  So far it has been used for IF only but does do just as well as the commercially bought products. At this point the only difference that has been observed is the color of the liquid, it’s brown.  This does in no way cause any visual problems when viewing the slides under a fluorescent scope, causing no distortion or color skewing.

Amyloid fluorescent

I am hesitant to say this is good for all aqueous mounting types because it has not been used on special staining like oil red O.

I hope to try this on test slides within the next several weeks and will update again as this progresses.
