Is your fluorescence fading before your eyes?

Improve image retention with VECTASHIELD antifade mounting media

Fluorophores are susceptible to photobleaching and fading so choosing an effective mounting medium is especially important for IF imaging.

VECTASHIELD formulations offer unsurpassed protection against fading and photobleaching, while providing excellent signal retention for image acquisition and specimen archiving.

 
You’ve done all the work—now let us help you preserve your images. With over 60,000 references, VECTASHIELD is the most widely referenced antifade mounting media available.
