Microscope Accessories for your Compound Scope

Immersion Oil for Microscopy:
In light microscopy, oil immersion is a technique used to increase the resolution of the microscope. This is achieved by immersing both the objective lens and the specimen in a transparent oil of high refractive index, thereby increasing the aperture of the lens. Some microscopes have oil immersion objectives which are specially designed to be used this way.
