Summary of VECTASHIELD® Vibrance™ Advantages Over Competitor Mounting Media










Easy Application and Use of VECTASHIELD Vibrance


Viewable in as Little as One Hour After Mounting – No Need to Wait 24 Hours

Competitor immunofluorescence workflows recommend slides be viewed 24 hours after mounting. VECTASHIELD Vibrance Mounting Media, however, allow same-day viewing to accelerate discovery without sacrificing signal intensity or retention.

Improved retention of fluorescence with VECTASHIELD Vibrance Mounting Medium. Serial sections of human colon tissue (FFPE) stained for cytokeratin (mouse primary antibody AE1/AE3) and detected with fluorescein-conjugated horse anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody (FI-2000). One hour after mounting with either VECTASHIELD Vibrance (top row) or a competitor mounting medium (bottom row), the sections were imaged at the intervals indicated. Note the improved retention of fluorescent signal for sections mounted with VECTASHIELD Vibrance Mounting Medium.
