SlowFade™ Glass Soft-set Antifade Mountant, with DAPI Invitrogen™

SlowFade Glass Antifade Mountant is a glycerol-based, ready-to-use, non-curing mountant applied directly to fluorescently labeled cell or tissue samples on microscope slides. It is formulated to have a refractive index of 1.52 for sharper images and antifade components to resist photobleaching. The result is sharp, bright images with almost any fluorophore, with wide-field, confocal, or super-resolution microscopes, at focal depths of 0–500 µm.

Since SlowFade Glass Antifade Mountant is non-curing, cells can be imaged immediately after mounting, without any of the adverse effects on cell morphology that a curing mountant might cause. It comes ready to use—just apply a drop to the sample, add a coverslip, and image. It is available with or without DAPI nuclear stain.

If a curing, hard-set mountant is needed, also with a refractive index of 1.52, for years of slide storage, then Prolong Glass Antifade Mountant is recommended. See Mounting Media and Antifades to learn more about our complete collection of mountants.

Features of SlowFade Glass Antifade Mountant include:
• Ready-to-use, glycerol-based, non-curing antifade mountant
• Refractive index of 1.52, with minimized spherical aberrations
• Up to three times better axial resolution compared to regular mountant
• Visible tissue optical clearing, even in sections up to 1-mm thick
• Sharp, bright images at any focal depth from 0 to 500 µm

Sharp images for deep 3D imaging
SlowFade Glass Antifade Mountant features a refractive index of 1.52 (similar to glass coverslips), with superior photobleach protection. It is compatible with immersion oil and oil-immersion microscope optics, enabling a refraction-free light path and minimized spherical aberration, which improves axial resolution by three times (at 150-µm focal depth) as measured by point spread function. When 1-mm thick tissue sections are mounted, there is visible optical tissue clearing, enabling deep 3D imaging. For 3D imaging of whole organs (up to 10 mm), please see Clearing Reagents for Imaging 3D Cell Culture and Tissue.

Inhibit photobleaching across the visible and near-IR spectra
No matter which fluorescent dyes or fluorescent proteins you are using, Slowfade Glass Antifade Mountant helps provide superior protection against photobleaching. It has been shown to have best-in-class performance with a wide array of fluorescent dyes, including Alexa Fluor, FITC, TRTC, Texas Red, Cy3, and Cy5 dyes, and fluorescent proteins, including GFP, RFP, and mCherry. SlowFade Glass mountant does not quench fluorophores, and its ability to provide brighter signal against no background helps ensure that you get the best-quality high-resolution images for publishing.

Non-curing mountant which does not expand or shrink specimens
Most tissue clearing techniques either expand or shrink the specimens, causing artifacts in specimen morphology. SlowFade Glass Antifade Mountant is non-curing and does not cause expansion or contraction of specimens, which we have verified using Hela spheroids and rat brain sections. This characteristic allows 3D imaging of truly native specimen morphology. The specimens are available for imaging immediately after mounting, and properly sealed slides can be stored for weeks or months for excellent imaging results.

CountBright™ Plus Absolute Counting Beads Invitrogen™

CountBright Plus Absolute Counting Beads are a calibrated suspension of ~4 µm beads that encapsulate dyes that are excitable across a wide range of UV-IR wavelengths and brightly fluoresce in the emission range of 385-860 nm. In instances where a flow cytometer is not designed to provide absolute cell count, the use of absolute counting beads can help to determine the count. Absolute cell count is defined as the concentration of cells in the original sample.

• Beads are on-scale with most cell types, including human whole lysed blood, for ease of use
• >95% singlets for improved accuracy
• Excited by UV-IR lasers for an expanded emission range (385–860 nm)

Galectin-9 Human ProcartaPlex™ Simplex Kit Invitrogen™

The Human Galectin-9 Simplex ProcartaPlex Kit measures Galectin-9 protein and is designed to be combinable with other Simplex kits so that you can create your own multiplex panel that utilizes Luminex xMAP technology for protein detection/quantitation. When combining multiple Simplex kits (i.e., when you are not using a pre-configured Multiplex Panel), only one buffer kit (sold separately) is needed for each assay plate regardless of plex size.

About ProcartaPlex Assays for the Luminex Platform

ProcartaPlex immunoassays are based on the principles of a sandwich ELISA, using two highly specific antibodies binding to different epitopes of one protein to quantitate all protein targets simultaneously using a Luminex instrument. ProcartaPlex multiplex assays require as little as 25 µL of plasma or serum, or 50 µL of cell culture supernatant, and just four hours to obtain analyzed results.

More results per sample—measure multiple protein targets simultaneously in a single 25–50 µL sample

Well-established Luminex technology—highly referenced multiplexing platform for protein detection and quantitation

ProcartaPlex assays utilize Luminex xMAP (multianalyte profiling) technology for the simultaneous detection and quantitation of up to 65 protein targets in a single 25–50 µL sample from plasma, serum, cell culture supernatants, and other bodily fluids.

The Luminex beads in the ProcartaPlex assay are internally dyed with precise proportions of red and infrared fluorophores to create spectrally unique signatures that can be identified by the Luminex xMAP detection systems (e.g. Luminex 200, FLEXMAP 3D, and MAGPIX). Similar to a sandwich ELISA, the ProcartaPlex assay uses matched antibody pairs to identify the protein of interest. In a multiplexed assay, each spectrally unique bead is labeled with antibodies specific for a single target protein, and bound proteins are identified with biotinylated antibodies and streptavidin–R-phycoerythrin (RPE). The conjugation of protein-specific antibodies to a distinct bead allows for analysis of multiple targets in a single well.

The most significant difference between a ProcartaPlex assay and ELISA is that the capture antibody in the ProcartaPlex assay is conjugated to a bead and not adsorbed to the microplate well, so the ProcartaPlex assay reagents are free-floating in the solution. For detection, the Luminex 200 instrument, for example, contains two lasers, one to distinguish the spectral signature of each bead and the second to quantify the amount of RPE fluorescence, which is proportional to the amount of protein present in the sample. ProcartaPlex multiplex assays can profile more target proteins using significantly less sample in the same time that it takes to perform a traditional sandwich ELISA.

ProcartaPlex multiplex panels are available in multiple formats across six species (human, mouse, rat, nonhuman primate, porcine, and canine). Visit thermofisher.com/procartaplex for more information, including a comprehensive list of individual protein targets.

Alexa Fluor™ Plus 555 Phalloidin Invitrogen™

For the best possible sensitivity and specificity, Alexa Fluor Plus 555 Phalloidin is synthesized to maximize the units of Alexa Fluor Plus 555 Phalloidin per length of F-actin.

View our complete selection of Alexa Fluor and Alexa Fluor Plus conjugated phalloidin for F-actin staining ›

• Selectively stains F-actin with 3–4 times the sensitivity of Alexa Fluor 555 Phalloidin
• Outstanding fluorescence performance for sharp actin cytoskeleton images
• Excitation/emission: 555/565 nm. Compatible with standard TRITC/RFP filter set or laser settings
• More sensitive and specific than antibody staining against actin
• Optimal for fixed and permeabilized samples

Enables superior results in your actin staining studies
Phalloidin is a bi-cyclic peptide belonging to a family of toxins originating from the deadly Amanita phalloides 'death cap' mushroom and commonly used in imaging applications to selectively label F-actin. Fluorescently-labeled phalloidin has several advantages over antibodies for actin labeling, including virtually identical binding properties with actin from different species of plants and animals, and low non-specific binding. Phalloidin binds F-actin with high selectivity, while Alexa Fluor Plus 555 dye provides orange/TRITC fluorescence of unparalleled brightness and photostability.

Use in multiple applications
Alexa Fluor Plus 555 Phalloidin can be used to visualize and quantitate F-actin in tissue sections, cell cultures, or cell-free preparations. Its staining is fully compatible with other fluorescent stains used in cellular analyses, including fluorescent proteins, Qdot nanocrystals, and other Alexa Fluor conjugates including secondary antibodies.
