Mounting media

In order to prepare permanent sections, stained samples must be covered with a suitable mounting medium. One of the most important criteria is the refractive index that must be similar to that of glass. Other criteria include a suitable solvent, polymer and medium viscosity. After the sample is covered with the medium and cover slide is mounted, the section is protected from external factors and remains preserved for a prolonged period of time. BioMount media do not crack nor turn yellow during sample storage.
