General description

Fluoroshield with DAPI is an aqueous mounting medium for preserving fluorescence of tissue and cell smears. This mounting medium is fortified with DAPI which is a counterstain for DNA. For use in in situ hybridization techniques or other methods where fluorescence of DNA staining is required. DAPI excites at 360 nm and emits at 460 nm, producing a blue fluorescence. RNA is also stained with DAPI.

Application

Fluoroshield with DAPI has been used:
  • as a counterstain in immunocytochemistry to label nuclei of neural progenitor cells[1]
  • as a histology mounting medium for cardiac tissues sections for immunofluorescence studies[2]
  • as mounting solution for immunostained heart sections for nuclei detection[3]
