Aqueous Mounting Medium

Mount-Quick ''Aqueous''

Mount-Quick ''Aqueous'' is developed for mounting the staining section of liparoid /lipod and immunity staining.
Especially when the soluble chromogen solution, e.g. AEC is used with organic solvent.


Use Mount Quick Aqueous when samples are not dehydrated and cleared (photograph because the color fades during long-term storage)

 Lipid stains
 Immunohistochemical staining (AEC)
 Blood smear staining
 PAS, FITC, DAB staining


*Both Mount Quick (Tube type) and Mount Quick "Aqueous" can be used with methyl green and BCIP/NBT staining, but are not suited for long-term storage. After staining, we recommend photographing the slide as soon as possible, as the color can fade in 24 hours after drying, dehydrating, clearing, and mounting.
BCIP/NBT can stain red and black with immunostaining.

How to use

After staining and washing, clean off the water from the glass slide.

Drop the Mount-Quick "Aqueous" on the cover glass or on the section.

Calmly put the cover glass over the section to avoid bubbles.

Excess liquid should be cleaned off with cloth or paper.

(Prevent bubble formation by inverting the container and touching the tip onto the bottom of the drop.)
* Before first use, cut open the container tip at a 45° angle with a box cutter or scissors.

Q. Is edging with manicure necessary after mounting?

A. Both products become completely hard, so this is not necessary.

Q. Can Mount Quick be used on plastic and ceramic plates?

A. There is no problem using Mount Quick with ceramic plates.
    With plastic plates, there is no problem with polypropylene, 
    but solvent can penetrate the plastic with some other materials.
