VECTASHIELD® PLUS Antifade Mounting Media

The latest VECTASHIELD added to this highly cited range

The team at 2BScientific are excited about the possibilities of this media for multiplex assays, enabling researchers to increase the number of fluorophores they can image on one slide before the results are destroyed by photobleaching, not to mention the stunning images!  

VECTASHIELD PLUS is the second generation of the best in class antifade mounting media—VECTASHIELD, which has over 60,000 references. This unique, stable formula for preserving fluorescence inhibits rapid photobleaching of fluorescent proteins and fluorescent dyes. This new non-setting formulation has been engineered to provide consistent, reliable signal retention of all commonly used fluorophores (from the visible to the far red) and eliminate blue background. VECTASHIELD PLUS enables you to see and do more with each experiment.
