Vector VIP and ImmPACT VIP chromogens also provide excellent color contrast in pigmented tissues such as melanoma or retina (1). Sections stained with either substrate can be viewed by darkfield and electron microscopy. Vector VIP and ImmPACT VIP substrates can be used for both manual and automated staining methods. Stained sections should be dehydrated, cleared, and permanently mounted.
