Immersion media are used in conjunction with immersion objectivs and are located between the surface of the specimen and the lens of the microscope. Immersion media are liquids that are frequently of an oily nature and which have a defined refractive index. It is important that the refractive index (nD) is about 1.5, that figure for glass. This enables a homogeneous oil immersion to be achieved. Immersion oils practically eliminate light beam deflection so that the effectiveness of the lens is considerably increased. The refractive index of the Immersion Oil for Microscopy and the Immersion oil acc. to ISO 8036 modified for microscopy is about 1.516. It is available in a practical PE dropper bottle that guarantees an unaltered viscosity of the immersion oil. The Immersion Oil for Microscopy and the immersion oil of cedar wood are produced from a natural component and the Immersion oil acc. to ISO 8036 modified for microscopy is a chemical-based immersion oil. The immersion oils can be used for clinical diagnostic purposes as they are certified and registered as IVD and CE-Products.
