Antifade Mountant for fluorescent proteins /oil-immersion objectives

Super Clear Mount


Super Clear Mount is designed to minimize spherical aberrations, enabling high-resolution imaging with high-NA oil-immersion objective lenses. Super Clear Mount is particularly powerful in super-resolution microscopy.
Super Clear Mount is useful not only for thick brain tissues, but also for thin samples for cell biology and histology; Super Clear Mount should work better than conventional mounting media with high-NA oil-immersion objective lenses. .

Resolution and brightness is maintained throughout depths in Super Clear Mount


Super Clear Mount refractive index (RI) of ~ 1.52, which is optimized to that of cover glass, immersion oil. and objectives. With Super Clear Mount, the fluorescence level is maintained throughout all depths. Super Clear Mount can be used to obtain super –resolution images of fluorescently labeled cells or tissue samples on microscope slides or coverslips.
