General description

CC/Mount is an aqueous based permanent mounting medium with a very high refractive index, which when applied to the stained tissue sections can store the tissue specimens permanently without the fading of the chromogens. Because of the superior refractive index of CC/Mount, tissues mounted in this medium look like specimens mounted with organic based mounting media. No coverslipping is required with CC/Mount. However, if coverslipping is required, dried CC/Mount can be post mounted by using an organic based mounting medium. CC/Mount permits the long-term storage of antigens localized using organic insoluble chromogen substrates, including AEC, DAB, Fast Red, BCIP/NBT, BCIP/INT and fluorescent dyes like FITC and phycobiliproteins. The high pH of CC/Mount ensures increased stability of fluorescence intensity.


CC/Mount is an aqueous based permanent mounting medium, similar to Crystal Mount, for the permanent preservation of tissue sections stained with peroxidase and alkaline phosphatase based systems as well as with various fluorescent dyes.

Features and Benefits

• No need of coverslip
• No exposure to organic fumes
• Permanent storage of slides
• High resolution of tissue specimens.

Preparation Note

Storage: Store the product at room temperature. Do not refrigerate.

Remove the red end cap from the bottle and cut the tip off with a sharp razor or scissors. This will allow a smooth flow of CC/Mount and prevent formation of tiny bubbles because of squeezing.
