Mounting marks the point of departure from the materials and methods that interact with the specimen to those that influence its image. Mounting is also referred to as coverslipping. Mounting completes the glass sandwich: (1) glass slide, (2) cells, (3) mounting medium, and (4) cover glass. The applicable chemical, optical, and physical properties of each of the 4 components are described throughout in this volume.
