abberior TDE Mounting Medium is a specimen mounting medium designed for use in 3D super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, in particular when thick specimens are to be imaged. By matching the refractive index of the embedding medium to that of the oil/ silicone oil /glycerol immersion optical aberrations and scattering are minimized. As a result, light penetrates deeper into the specimen and the imaging contrast is enhanced. These benefits are particularly beneficial in super-resolution imaging/ nanoscopy. TDE also has reducing properties which help against photobleaching. Antifade properties have been reported to be at least as good as other common antifade reagents.
