CFM solutions

The CFM solutions have been specially formulated to have a refractive index of 1.52 (similar to glass), so that effects of refraction on image quality are minimised.

The CFM solutions have been specially formulated to have a refractive index of 1.52 (similar to glass), so that effects of refraction on image quality are minimised. They are particularly useful for high magnification work and may also be used as immersion oils. They are valuable for laser scanning microscopy where three dimensional imaging of specimens is carried out. CFM solutions should only be used with fixed (cross-linked) samples.
