Abstract

The use of normal immersion oil, developed for 23 degrees C, at 37 degrees C greatly compromises both axial resolution and signal intensity. We developed and characterized an immersion oil for optimal performance in live-cell imaging at 37 degrees C. We quantify the improvements in resolution and intensity obtained when using the new oil instead of its standard 23 degrees C counterparts.
