High viscosity for use at 37°C. The Code 859.
Viscosity is 1250 cSt (at 37°C), for work at body temperatures.
High Viscosity Immersion Oil for Use at Body Temperature
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.
Special Properties and Applications:
Because of widespread availability, consistent quality and close specifications, Cargille Oils are used as temporary mounting media, fluid mounts (permitting specimen rotation), calibration liquids, optical coupling fluids, combination protective coating and examination fluid, transparency medium for translucent materials, and membrane filter clearing agent.
It is important to note that all Cargille oils for microscopy are 100% PCB-free and are offered in three different viscosities but which can be easily mixed for any required intermediate viscosity. Each bottle includes a convenient and easy-to-use glass applicator in a screw down cap.
