Question (76256) | Fluoroshield Mounting Medium (100ml) (ab104136)

Lot number: GR 170042-1
Inquiry: I would like to know the refractive index of this product to be able to calculate the point spread function for deconvolution processing. Thanks

Fluoroshield 1.364± 0.002

These numbers apply to these mounting mediums in solution. Refractive indexes change when the water solvent evaporates and mounting media dries on slides. We do not have the means to measure the refractive indexes of dry mounting mediums; however we expect the numbers to go higher when dried. The refractive index of water is 1.3330.
