John, we tried it, didn't like it.  I found that it didn't spread well,
and when dry would leave huge air pockets or air bubbles.  I could never
really put "enough" mounting medium on...any more and the coverslip
would have slid around out of place.  We switched to the ProLong Gold,
anti-fade.  It's expensive, but given the fact we're a service facility,
it's worth it to use the right tool for the job for our researchers.
