DAKO has Permanent Red for alk phos IHC.  Chris van der Loos indicated DAKO 
product was very sensitive, and it also fluoresces.  Vector red is AP and 
also fluoresces. Have not tried Vector Red to compare with primary antibody 
concentrations.  These reds are more on dark pink red side, rather than 
orangish red of AEC, or Brick red of NOVA Red.

NOVA Red from Vector, but it is a brick red!!  Darker than AEC.

You can mount AEC from water, using Crystal mount, let this dry and then 
add a permanent mounting media.
