The storage conditions that a Sigma-Aldrich catalog and label recommend for products are deliberately conservative. For many products, long-term storage at low temperatures will increase the time during which they are expected to remain in specification and therefore are labeled accordingly. Where short-term storage, shipping time frame, or exposure to conditions other than those recommended for long-term storage will not affect product quality, Sigma-Aldrich will ship at ambient temperature. The products sensitive to short-term exposure to conditions other than their recommended long-term storage are shipped on wet or dry ice. Ambient temperature shipping helps to control shipping costs for our customers. At any time, our customers can request wet- or dry-ice shipment, but the special handling is at customer expense if our product history indicates that the product is stable for regular shipment. See Shipping and Storage for more information.

Fluoromount does not contain glycerol. The exact formulation is considered proprietary.
Fluoromount does not contain an antifade reagent. If you need an antifade mounting media, check Fluoroshield (Product Nos. F6182, F6057 and F5932) or PVA with antifade (Product Nos. 10981 and 10979).
Fluoromount will solidify as it dries. This typically takes 30-40 minutes.
Place the slide in a beaker full of deionized water on a magnetic stirrer. Gently stir the slide for a few hours to overnight for complete removal of dry Fluoromount.
Product No. F4608, Fluoromount is essential the same as GelMount. GelMount was deleted by the supplier. Fluoromount is being made by another supplier with the same formulation.

The Human Protein Atlas Program has carefully selected three different human cell lines, A-431 epidermoid carcinoma, U-251 MG glioblastoma and U-205 osteosarcoma, for organelle mapping of the proteome. As Prestige Antibodies are studied by immunofluorescence (IF) staining, three well-characterized organelle markers for nuclei, microtubules and endoplasmic reticulum are used correspondingly as specific probes. The high-resolution confocal images are annotated based on sub-cellular localization. In addition, staining intensity and characteristics are also part of an overall assessment as well as comparison to literature (if available).
