µBrews – Episode 4

Oil immersion lenses are a must-have for any brewery hoping to perform microscopy beyond yeast cell counts. However, using an oil lens properly can be a challenge, and incorrect useage can damage both the oil lens and the other objective lenses on your microscope. This video demonstrates how to properly and safely use an oil immersion lens, and how to protect both the oil and non-oil lenses to ensure your microscope lasts for years.

A more detailed description of microscope components and how to select a microscope for your brewery can be found at my blog.

This is part of a video series on using microscopy in the home or craft brewery. A full list of published episodes can be found on my µBrews YouTube playlist, or on my blog.
