VECTASHIELD Antifade Mounting Medium 

VECTASHIELD Antifade Mounting Medium is a glycerol-based, aqueous mountant 

that remains a viscous liquid on the slide rather than solidifying. After mounting, coverslipped 

slides will not readily dry out, enabling you to review them for weeks without 

the need for sealing. For prolonged storage, coverslips can be permanently sealed with 

nail polish applied on the coverslip perimeter. 

 

VECTASHIELD PLUS Antifade Mounting Medium 

VECTASHIELD PLUS is a new formulation of non-setting media that improves upon the 

original VECTASHIELD products. Specifically, VECTASHIELD PLUS exhibits no inherent 

background or toning and provides superior fluorophore signal retention across the 

spectrum, including far-red wavelengths.

Human Colon: Rabbit Anti-Cytokeratin (AE1/AE3) and Mouse Anti-Desmin detected simultaneously with VectaFluor Duet Double Labeling Kit; Vasculature detected using DyLight 649 UEA I Lectin (purple). Mounted in VECTASHIELD PLUS Antifade Mounting Medium. 

 


 

VECTASHIELD HardSet Antifade Mounting Medium 

VECTASHIELD HardSet Antifade Mounting Medium is an aqueous mountant that 

hardens at room temperature in as little as 20 minutes. This mounting medium 

provides easy slide handling, eliminates the need to secure the coverslip with nail 

polish, and is convenient for use with oil immersion microscopy. Available with or 

without DAPI or TRITC-phalloidin counterstain.

VECTASHIELD Vibrance Antifade Mounting Medium 

VECTASHIELD Vibrance Antifade Mounting Medium is an aqueous mountant that hardens at room temperature in as little as 20 minutes. This mounting medium provides easy slide handling, eliminates the need to secure the coverslip with nail polish, and is convenient for use with oil immersion microscopy. Available with or without DAPI counterstain.
