While the outer lens surfaces will be clean, the inner components may be affected or even damaged.
Microscope objectives are complex constructions.
It is too risky.

SOURCE: Can stained bacteria be seen with a 40x magnification microscope?

Hello--I understand that you need at least 600x to view bacteria and some say 1500+ so 40x doesn't seem to be in the right mag. area at all--not sure this helps much.You could purchase a 100x obj. and 10/15x eyepieces but will probably be into oil immersion for the obj.Possibly a 20x eyepiece + a 60x obj will give you a degree of definition.I use a SEBEN Bino with this combi and it gives a small view but not good.kind regards martin r

Mf 2 model - where do you put the cedar oil when using 100x magnifcation. i have read the manual and do not understand. i am a novice


The oil goes between the cover slip of the slide and the objective tip. It can also help to put some between the condenser lens and the bottom of the slide. Be careful when using oil, as when rotating to lower magnifications, it is very possible for the 40x to get oil on it. The 100x is sealed to protect it, but the 40x is not. If oil gets on the 40x, it can seep up inside and destroy the lens.

It is also a very good practice to clean both the 100x and 40x after each use. If the oil sits on even the sealed 100x objective for any long extent of time, it will start to break down the silicon seal, and you can potentially have the same problem as with the 40x, where the objective acts like a wick of a candle and sucks up the oil, thereby destroying the objective.

What is the function and the purpose of the parts of the microscope ?


Starting at the bottom of the Compound Microscope scope working up: The base of the scope houses the illumination system and the field lens. It also provides weighted stablility.
The field lens is where the light comes out of the base. This lens focuses the light from the bulb directly into the substage condenser.
The arm of the scope supports the rest of the scope.
Directly above the field condenser is the substage condenser. The substage condenser collects the light and condenses it further into a more concentrated beam of light. With the substage condenser you can control the amount of light and to some degree the defraction of light. This is helpful in adjusting the "contrast" in the image.
Working up, you find the "stage" which is a platform to support the specimen. The stage may or may not have a specimen holder and a set of specimen holder control knobs.
The magnifying lenses are called the objectives. They look like barrels pointing down at the stage. These are usually marked 4x, 10x, 40x, and 100x. These magnifications are further multiplied by the power of the eyepieces which are usually 10x. So, when using the 4x you are actually seeing the specimen at 40x and when you are using the 10x objective you are actually seeing the specimen at 100x and so on. The 4x is used to "scan" the specimen so that you can find the most interesting area and then focus in further on that region. It is very hard to find exactly what you want to focus in on starting with the higher magnifications. Always start with the low magnifications, 4x or 10x.
The objective lenses are mounted on a rotating turret for easy selection.
Moving on up the scope is the head. It is comprised of the eye tube and the eyepiece. If you have two eyepieces your scope is referred to as a "Binocular Compound Microscope". If you have only one eyepiece, your scope is a "Monocular Compound Microscope".

Why should the coarse focusing knob not be used when focusing with the higher-powered objective lenses


There are two reasons. One reason is that when on high power you are working so close to the glass slide that it is easy to misjudge how much you are moving the specimen toward the lens that you can break a slide before you realize it. The coarse focus moves the stage with the specimen on it very fast and you only have a very very short distance within the focus plane before you run the objective lens into the slide.
Secondly, it is just harder to control the minute adjustments needed at the higher powers with the "coarse" focus knob. If you start at the low magnifications find what you want to concentrate on with the coarse focus knobs and then work your way up to the higher powers, you will have very little trouble moving to the fine focus controls at 40x and 100x while still having control of your image.

What do I put in conair ultrasound jewely cleaner. I do not have any instructions in box.


To begin the cleaning process, the cleaning tank is filled with warm water or a cleaning solution Cleaning solutions can consist of non-ionic surfactants, detergents or ammonia. Note that cleaning agents with bleach and acids should be avoided.
Place jewelry items in the basket or directly into the cleaning tank.
Turn the machine on. Once on, the machine's motor produces ultrasonic energy which is transmitted with vibrating energy waves. On average, ultrasonic jewelry cleaners emit at least 40,000 sound waves per second.
The vibrating motion of the ultrasonic waves creates microscopic bubbles in the water or cleaning solution. millions of tiny bubbles knock into one another and into the items resting in the cleaning tank. The motion is very effective at penetrating the tiny crevices in jewelry that traditional cleaning cloths and topical cleaners cannot easily reach.
After a few moments, the cleaning process is complete. Once the motor is turned off, the dirt and debris from the jewelry will settle and collect at the bottom of the cleaning tank. Remove the basket or jewelry from the cleaning tank and rinse with clean fresh water. You can complete the process by drying the jewelry with a soft cloth.

Need to know what type of oil to use


Immersion Oil made for microscopes today is non fluorescing. You should be able to use any immersion oil on the market.


* Tip - After using your 100x oil objective, make sure to clean the lens thoroughly, as cross contamination to the 40x objective is a common occurrence. It will save you a lot of headaches down the road.
