I've been using Prolong Gold and I'm not a huge fan.
What mounting media do people prefer for spinal cord or DRG?
We are huge fan of the Mowiol mounting medium.
Good results at a cheap cost!
Thanks @tberta. This is what we always use daily but I switched to commercial product to save some time. But I don't think it's great. I may go back to mowiol.
For a commercial product I like Vectashield (https://vectorlabs.com/vectashield-mounting-medium.html)
Thanks @liz. Do you use this or Mowiol like @tberta?
I routinely use the Vectashield for anything that I will store for longer than a day. For just a quick look when nice pictures are not required I'll use 50% glycerol in PBS.
I second Vectashield--don't mistakenly get the hard set, Stick with the stuff Liz included in her first comment--it works pretty well.
Confirm - I tried the hardset thinking it would be advantageous but the slides don’t last nearly as long in storage, becoming discolored and dried out over time.
