Hi, can anybody recommend a mounting medium for live cell fluorescent
microscopy except water? I tried glycerol based mounting medium
VECTASHIELD H-1000 but it bursted my cells immediately. Water is okay
but is there anything better than water in terms of preventing the
movement of the cells under microscope and better optical qualities?
Thanks.
