Cargille™ Type 37 Immersion Oil

Optical and physical properties



Immersion Oil Type 37 is useful for microscopic studies at body temperatures. Since the index/temperature relationship is inverse, increasing temperature significantly reduces the index of the immersion oil and consequently the imagery deteriorates. This problem has been resolved by the formulation of Cargille 37°C Immersion Oil.

Cargille Immersion Oil Type 37 has a refractive index (D line) of 1.515, and meets the DIN (Deutsches Institut Fur Normung e.v.) 58 884 specification in every respect except that it is calibrated at 37°C instead of 23°C. Viscosity at 37°C is 1250 centistokes.

Consideration of these 37°C oils is suggested where stage temperatures are elevated by sub-stage illuminators and high wattage projection equipment.

This unique new formula was developed using the CARGILLE REFRACTIVE INDEX LAB computer from a data base of components for experimental and custom formulation of immersion oil and refractive index liquids. Immediately Available in 1, 4, and 16 oz. Bottles One ounce bottles feature glass rod in cap for dispensing. Shipping weight of 12-pack cartons: 1 oz./3 lbs; 4 oz./7 lbs; 16 oz. / 21 lbs.
