Immunofluorescence applications enhanced by anti-fade mountant

Vector Laboratories has introduced VECTASHIELD Vibrance – anti-fade mounting medium that delivers significant improvements to the immunofluorescence workflow. VECTASHIELD Vibrance produces increased brightness over the entire visible spectrum, including far-red fluorophores, compared to existing mounting medium offerings.

VECTASHIELD Vibrance produces ultra-low background to provide a clean, crisp image, enabling researchers to study finer details and cellular markers. Blue background is eliminated, which ensures high contrast, and a uniform sheet of the new medium produces virtually no bubbles to detract from the quality of the slide.

Offered with and without DAPI counterstain, VECTASHIELD Vibrance-mounted slides can be stored at room temperature, providing increased flexibility and options for archiving. Specimens mounted with VECTASHIELD Vibrance can be viewed in one hour instead of the recommended 24 hours for other media. VECTASHIELD Vibrance is offered in 2 mL and 10 mL formats with a minimum one-year expiration date from the date of manufacture.
