We have used a hardmount Thermo "Immumount" Cat# 9990402. It is the only hardmount we tested that gave good focus using the NanoZoomer scanner. No need to seal with nail polish, saving a lot of time. We just re-scanned slides that were stained 6 months ago and still had great fluorescence. We use life Technologies "Alexa Fluor" secondary antibodies.

We use DPX. It has worked very well for us. I am not sure about the cost though, but anything bought in kits can get really pricy. DPX comes in 500 ml.
