* With the 3 Well | 8 Well | 12 Well Chamber Slide, removable, ibidi provides self-adhesive, removable silicone chambers that are mounted on a standard glass slide. They are suitable for upright and inverted microscopy and enable long-term storage of samples after immunofluorescence staining.
Immersion Oil Compatibility of ibidi Labware
Oil immersion is used to increase the resolution of the objective, up to its physical limit. Placing immersion oil instead of air between the objective lens and the coverslip allows for a significantly higher amount of light to be collected by the lens. This, in turn, increases the resolution and the signal-to-noise ratio in microscopic images.
For high-resolution microscopy, cell culture chambers need to be compatible with immersion oil. All ibidi μ-Slides, μ-Dishes, and μ-Plates are compatible with a variety of commonly used immersion oils.
